What I love the most is connecting with parents whose children have special needs. I love to listen to them and believe it's important to support and listen to their feelings. The trust they give me is what motivates me to do my job.
I was curious about the work ELG does, and began working there. After some time working with children with special needs, and having gained a deeper understanding about the situation in China, I saw there was a huge need for specialists who could offer their help and expertise. I wanted to equip myself with more skills to help these children.
As a program leader at ELG, what I usually do is supervise and support my staff and offer them my expertise in behavioral support. I also maintain frequent communication with parents to keep them updated and to involve them in their children's day-to-day life in programs. I'm eager to keep learning the skills I need to support our children with special needs, which is why I'm pursuing a Board Certified Behavior Analyst certificate right now.
