Why did I start Excel Supported Living?
I am not an expert, but I have a lot of experience working with children and adults that have disabilities; whether it is mental, emotional, or physical. I am always actively searching for continued educational classes I can attend because I believe that there is always room for improvement and no one can know everything there is to know about any subject. To me it’s a privilege and honor to work with children and adults with disabilities and to be able to help them reach their full potential. I love the challenge of helping someone be happy, gain confidence, and make great progress. It’s a pursuit that is not only meaningful, fulfilling, and gratifying but it is something that I was put on this earth to do. One of the things I like most about working with children and adults that have disabilities is the amount of progress they achieve and the potential they have. I choose to also work with children with severe disabilities because it is my passion and I believe that I WILL make a difference. If ever I feel that there was a session / interaction that I wasn’t able to help a child/adult, I always analyze the time spent with that child/adult to ensure I document what techniques worked, what progress was made, what techniques happened to not work, and also any regression or areas that no progress was made. After doing this I consider new strategies, and if needed, new resources that I can reach out to, to help that child in our next session. I bring great effort and enthusiasm to all areas of my work, but I also have a calmness and patience that seems to work well with children and adults who have disabilities. I can say that I simply try my hardest and do my best.”
