Be open minded and compassionate. The job is not for everyone, and it’s certainly not for people who just want a pay check. It is for people who want to help children and truly care about the job. Be confident in your answers. There are many kids of varying ages 5-18 with many different kinds of disabilities: most questions are hypothetical questions, like “what would you do in this scenario?” Be prepared for many of those questions, and be prepared to know about different disabilities and how to work with children with different disabilities.
