Kim Fahrni: “I have been with her for over 3 yrs and lets just say that rotating aides every 18 months sound like a much better plan. It’s been awesome to see her growth and get to know her so well, but the burnout is sometimes overwhelming. There are only so many times that you can get hit, kicked, or bit before you start to wonder if you have chosen the right line of work.” – Kim works with autistic and other special needs children. I know she loves her work and the little girl she’s currently working with, but on occasion it can be physically and emotionally draining for her. I hope she’ll keep writing on her weblog as a way to help herself and others dealing with autism.

She’s making a difference, and I think she’s pretty terrific.
