If you have any other Child Care Experience we should know of, please describe them
I feel fortunate to have some knowledge related to certain diagnoses (autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, intellectual disability and developmental delay) that within the time spent in a child development institution allowed me to delve into each of them. these diagnoses, as well as group and family management (parenting guidelines and coping process). With this experience he has facilitated and empowered me on the use of didactic and practical resources to favor a development according to the capacities of each child. In addition, it allowed me to be more aware of diversity and respect for this type of population that in a certain context is still vulnerable.

Finally, I am open to learning new knowledge about driving with children from a different culture.
