Imagine my excitement when the answers to my questions were unraveled one by one during the course of my studies. I was especially happy that the diploma course helped me affirm that my life goal is to be a special needs teacher. Moreover, it has molded me to think in a holistic manner, which is important for teachers who work with young children especially those with special needs. The course instilled unique qualities such maturity, responsibility, creativity, and patience. It also encourages us to be a loving and caring person. As a special needs teacher, we were taught the significance of understanding the developmental level of every child under our tutelage and how to modify our teaching methods and materials accordingly. We also need to be very observant to discern the real reasons behind a child’s every behavior. Undoubtedly it is a challenging job but I find it immensely satisfying.
