Hi everyone, I had a terrible day at work today. I work with 2 autistic kids and 2 special needs kids, and they were impossible today. One of the autistic kid bites u if u don't give him what he wants. And all the other kids don't listen. No matter how many times u tell them too. I feel like I'm wasting all my energy. Came home crying uncontrollably, i'm also going through a very hard time ontop of all that. So everything combine makes me melt down. I can't take this any more. I want to quit my job but then I won't have any money, and need money for bills and other things, pls help!!

Do they use ABA (applied behavioral analysis)??? Have they provided you with information on how to protect yourself??? When someone bites always push your arm INTO the bite. The person stops biting then. Either way, if you haven't received training in dealing with kids with autism OR how to avoid or correct harmful situations, I'd jump ship. To me it doesn't sound like a supportive atmosphere and the kids are just being housed if they aren't taught to stop aggressive behaviors. ABA I believe is the only way to go about it too. Before you quit, find another job. That way you're not left unemployed. Do you have a degree??? If so, you should be able to find another job relatively quickly. If not, be very careful. Either way, don't quit until you have another job.

I agree. Try to find something else before you quit.

Maybe you can take off a day or two. That sometimes helps.
