Default Autism Specialist Higher Level Teaching Assistant.

I am a qualified level 3 teaching assistant to triple distinction standard. I have been working within an autistic setting for 5 school years, working with severely autistic pupils ranging from 3-19 years of age. I cover the teacher when she is not in, deal with behaviours, make resources, ICT, evidencing, target setting, planning, recording etc.

I have a huge amount of high quality training, qualifications and expertise behind me within the asd field along with teacher training courses. I am looking for a similar job within the USA. I am confident that my skills, professionalism and expertise would be transferred to any new opportunity that is risen for me, ideally i would like to remain in a field of my expertise - asd, special needs etc.

Hi, and welcome to BE.

It might be worth giving a bit of info about your status in the US - assuming you're work authorised as it's not a job that would result in visa sponsorship, so are you a USC or green card holder? Also, any specific state?

Good luck with the search.

Hi - thanks for getting back to me.

we are currently based within the UK, we are very new to it moving to US, we have family out there but not immediate family so we know that is pretty much a no-go. At the moment we are finding our way around your forum trying to find out all relevant information, what is the best route to go etc.

You will be extremely lucky to get a school to sponsor you...as U.S. schools seem to be very short on funds. I suggest you post in our US forums...USA - British Expats. There have been several threads in the last month or so by teachers who wish to move to the U.S.

Yep, as JG said I'd suggest you post in the main US forums to see if you've got any chance of visa sponsorship if you're not a USC (or married to one).

Then if not, you can either figure out a way to work towards becoming eligible for visa sponsorship (perhaps more education, specialist skills, or using OH's job instead etc), or a 'Plan B'.

And if you are, then the lovely peeps in the US forums can give you some good job hunting advice and let you know what you'll need to do to be able to work in your choice of state.

Best of luck with it.
