Letter to the family

Dear future Host Family,

I am an education assistant and support worker for children diagnosed with autism and developmental delays in both English and French speaking settings. I really enjoy my profession because it allows me to be very active and creative when working to support and engage with children who communicate differently and have different needs. I am in the process of applying for an MsC in Occupational Therapy and am hoping for the opportunity to work abroad before I begin graduate school.

My experience working with children impacted on the autism spectrum has given me the confidence to assure that I can provide a safe and fun environment for your children! I feel that I would be a great fit in an active home and look forward to learning about your culture and the country where you call home!

Experience

I have training in safety management, nonviolent crisis intervention and firstt aid. I work as an education assistant (EA) in a Kindergarten classroom at a Francophone school in Alberta, Canada. I also nanny (part time) for a family and enjoy working with children so much that I’ve decided to apply for a master’s in occupational therapy so that I may better support the development of children who have autism or developmental delays.

I have worked with children in different roles for 5 years- first working in outreach and public programming with children aged 5-17 at my provincial museum (2015-2017), then as a summer camp counsellor (2019) and now as an EA (2019/2020).

I have experience packing lunches and following a morning and evening routine established by parents. I also have experience taking children out on excursions, and with my professional background, I have a very strong interest in taking them to places where they can learn (like museums) and where they can simply have fun and be active (swimming pools, parks, etc). I really enjoy being active and playing sports, and my work with the museum and in the kindergarten classroom has allowed me the opportunity to learn many different activities and crafts that would be fun for children!
