I am very interested in getting my foot in the door in an early intervention program. I have scoured the internet and talked to some of my colleagues (I am currently a teacher assistant in an elementary school, but certified k-5 and with a BA in psychology) but I have not really come up with any useful information or contacts. I understand that because I do not have a SPED certification my options are limited, but I would like to start in the field before going back to school to further my certifications. While I was teaching pre-k, I had a few students who came in with one to one aides for different reasons and I was always curious about how and where they came about finding their jobs. I know for certain that the one who worked with a young boy I had with social problems was not certified in special ed and possessed only a BA that was not an education degree. She had mentioned to me that her "cousin" got her the job working with the same company as her. I would greatly appreciate any helpful information. Thank you.
