How to prioritize multiple aspects of your job

2 Answers

Through a combination of deadline, difficulty, project length, team status and inherent importance. For example, a short deadline, difficult project where a team requires my work is going to get priority over an equally short deadline, easy project, because the team’s productivity is based on my own productivity. I also try to group similar items together and get started early on difficult, time consuming projects so that when I brush up against the deadline I am not scrambling and can give attention to other projects as needed.

Quality Services for the Autism Community

You hear a slap, but you don't know exactly what happened because you have your back turned towards the person who did the slapping. What do you do? (you have to keep in mind that you cannot physically retaliate against the autistic children if they hit or slap you. that is considered abuse and sufficient grounds for firing) What would you do if someone spread rumors about you that tainted your professional image (l.e to your boss and colleagues) and affected your chances of employment?

2 Answers

I had a situation similar where I saw two kids pushing then I saw who was doing the pushing and asked him if he needed a break he said yeas then I had him sit in the back of the class until he cooled off then I talked to each kid. In the case of slapping and my back was turned I make it clear first of all that hitting is not allowed and if the kid is verbal I ask them what happened if the kid is nonverbal I try to calm them down with a distraction and separate them from the group Less

as for rumors I would ignore them and let my work speak for itself if a supervisor ask I simply tell them the truth and leave it at that Less
