Nicholas, your situation on a professional level seem to match with that of mine. I recently graduated with a degree in Special Education focusing in the Adapted Curriculum and I am currently working on my 4+1 for Reading Education with a Certificate in Autism. That being said, my student teaching placement was in a classroom for children with Autism. I find the CAP worker program an awesome thing and I'm so glad you've had that experience. I feel that gives you an upper hand, because although it is ideal that we work on functional skills in our classroom, a lot of the focus gets put on academics. It's nice that you've had so much experience with that. I agree, I'm looking forward to being about to learn how to integrate the two more so in a classroom. I can't wait to hear more about this from you!
