* Carrying out a child's care plan (education, social, behaviour and personal)
* Encouraging children to communicate
* Giving information and help to teachers
* Supporting children during social activities and outings
* Helping children during therapy sessions
* Recognising when children are upset and comforting them looking after children's physical needs
