was going to go into Occupational Therapy, with an eye towards eventually one-on-one Special Ed,

That’s wonderful. I just looked up ABA – it looks like a direction I could work with. [of course it would take schooling and such – and it would a life-change the more I look at it tongue emoticon ] – but I worked with children that have cerebral palsy, Autism and Down’s Syndrome a LONG time ago (back in 1993/1994) for a year and was going to go into Occupational Therapy, with an eye towards eventually one-on-one Special Ed, but life’s complicated and the stuff costs money, so I went into computers instead.

Now at 43, I’m looking into ways to pick up where I left off, but I can see there’s been a LOT of positive development since way back when.

In any case, thank you. Seeing a positive homeschool tutor working out is wonderful and THEN finding out it’s a little more involved than that in a direction I had been interested in pursuing for a while was a bonus and is inspirational to me. Thanks smile emoticon

 

That’s awesome – and I will. I’d have to find a way to fast-track my way through a BA or BS; I never even got an Associate’s [did coursework leading to Child Psych and then in my late 20s, some community college leading towards Elementary Special Education… [just some “Grade 13″ History courses mostly with a professor who called North American Native American’s “Lazy” compared to the South American Native American’s… I’m STILL shocked all these years later]…

… but never _did_ get that Associate’s degree.

But I know there’s plenty of life experience programs out there that can fast-track credits. $$$ of course. Always $$$.

But I won’t go on my rant about financial barriers to education/careers… and I just might have to “bite the bullet” and dive in. Keep me in mind; if I’m able to pull things together to head in that direction I’ll be sure to drop you a line here.
