My ds has certain disabilities ( autism, SPd, add, )
He receives services but he learns the most from me, the more I learn, the more he progresses
Ashford university has online programs, I could do a masters in speech pathology , they they the intensive is one class every 5 weeks and I could get the title in 18 months.
The word intensive scare me. I know I shouldn't complaint, my son is with dad twice during the weekday and every other weekend. But when I am with him it is about him, he needs me after all
He only sleeps fro. 10 to 7 so studying after he goes to sleep is not an option
I have not thought about finances, because I need to figure out if I can do this thing.
I work full time and I have a 45 min commute each way.
They estimate I need to dedicate 10 to 12 hours a week, does that sound right?
I think this Weill allow me to help my son better, plus, on the personal selfish side, I am really wanting a change in careers I to something that relates to children.
Ashford also has a bachelors in child development.. Same amour of time... On the intensive
What do you think? Or better question is, how do I determine if I have what it takes?
