Hi, My name is Dawn, I have a BA in Early Childhood Education with a minor in psychology. A Masters degree in "Learning Disabilities" with a focus on children with Social Emotional Disabilities, Physical Disabilities, and Cognitive Disabilities. I have been a special education teacher for ten years. I worked with students who had severe and profound physical and cognitive disabilities. I also sub in our special education co-op for 4yrs. There i taught children with all levels of disabilities from learning to social emotional to cognitive and physical. I am a foster parent. I have had two teenage girls placed with me who had cognitive and social emotional disabilities. I do not have any children which i have given birth to. My husband and i have adopted a little boy through DCFS 1 1/2 year ago. He came into our home as a foster child 2 1/2yrs ago. He is a Joy in our lives and sometimes a pain in our butts. The bottom line is we do Love him. He 4yrs old.
