What is it like to work with special needs children and how do I deal with it?

I am interested in considering the idea of working with youth who have special needs. But I don't interact with children very often so I only really know how people around my age with special needs, such as autism, act. I'm aware that because they are children, their temper and behavioral decisions are going to be different, but I would like to know how I should react in this kind of situation. Also, since it is an emotionally and mentally demanding job, how do I manage my own frustrations and stress by myself when it feels like things are too much?

What are some specific careers for someone who wants to help children and is also interested in psychological and/or physical therapy ?

I’m in 11th grade right now but are there any classes I should take prior to college to have a better understanding of these things in college? I’m in a VHS class right now that talks about Psychology of Crime which I’m also very interested in if I just want to focus on psychology more but I’m not sure what the better path is. I also would like to know all the steps I need to take and the degrees I need, etc.

How can I start a passion project of the medical field I want to peruse?

I am a freshman and I want to start creating a passion project, but i don't know how? I have an idea: Crafting Health Toolkit Initiative Project Concept: Develop a comprehensive toolkit that includes physical items made through crochet and arts & crafts, and digital resources for children's health and wellness. 'Bake for Health' Educational Series Project Concept: A series of workshops and online content that uses baking to teach scientific and health-related concepts. but I need a step by step plan on how to do this and make a difference in my community. Also I’m a freshman so I might not have the resources to do this! But I'm open for help and tips/websites to complete these tasks of mine.

Is kinesiology or child development better for a high school student looking into medicine?

I'm selecting my 9th grade classes. I have no idea if other schools do this, but we have to create a "career plan" and select classes for all four years of high school. Between the classes of kinesiology (my high school's course catalog defines it as studying the effects of exercise on the body and studying skeletal, muscular, and neural movements) and child development (working with and talking to young children, earning CPR and first aid qualifications along the way), which is better if I would like to become a premed student in college? I specifically am interested in orthopedics or becoming a surgeon.

How do I find babysitting jobs?

I am going into 9th grade. I love to be around little kids. I do not have many people to babysit for, though. My parents do not want me to put up flyers because they don't want me to be going into other people's homes.

Is becoming a pediatrician worth it if you want to have a balanced work and social life? ?

I'm currently a sophomore in high school and interested in becoming a pediatrician. I'm worried if I follow this path, I won't have time to spend with my family. In addition, I want to be a mother when I'm older and have time for my children as well. I have doubts about whether or not the years of school are worth it.

What are the career paths for people interested in Children's Rights?

I am NOT interested in being a social worker. I'm actually interested in completely revamping the child welfare system. I don't agree with the current standards of social work. I am more interested in national work such as with UNICEF USA or working with the United Nations or being a national children's rights lobbyist. I'm just not sure where to start. I also have an interest in law but I'm not entirely sure I see myself as a lawyer. I would definitely work as an amicus lawyer but I'm not sure the family law field is ready for me to be able to focus on children's rights specifically.
