However, if you seek a position where you can positively impact a child's life and help them reach their greatest potential; consider working with autistic children. The autistic center is located in Qingdao city, Shandong Province, China.
Qingdao, a beautiful seaside city, is located in the southeast part of Shandong Province. To the east, a short distance across the Yellow Sea, lie Korea and Japan, making Qingdao an important city for international trade.
For thirty three years, until 1949, Qingdao was a colony of Germany and Japan. As a result, buildings in Qingdao have a great deal of European architecture. This foreign architecture -a remnant of the colonial past- now beautifies this seaside city.
The red roofs, green trees, blue sea, and azure sky form a bright and colorful picture of Qingdao. The city is sometimes known as the Switzerland of the Orient.
Surrounded by the sea on three sides, Qingdao attracts many tourists with its charming seascape. Sights like the Eight Passes Villas, the Zhan Bridge, Wusi Square, Mt. Laoshan, will help you remember Qingdao. Just walking on the sand and listening to the surf breaking on the beach becomes enjoyable.
Qingdao offers food with distinctive flavors--especially seafood. So take this chance to enjoy the delicious seafood of Qingdao. Also, Qingdao is the home of the famous Qingdao (Tsingtao) Beer. Have a bottle of pure Qingdao Beer right here in Qingdao!
The Qingdao Municipal Government recognizes the importance of the tourism industry and has further plans to develop tourism in Qingdao. To enhance the tourism industry, Qingdao now sponsors the Qingdao International Beer Festival, the Qingdao International Sea Festival, Beach Culture Festival, the Sea Affection Festival, and the Summer of Qingdao Festival.
In cooperation with the Beijing Olympic Games 2008, Qingdao held
Our program has demonstrated success in helping children communicate with others and control their physical reactions to stimuli. If you choose to work with us, you will interact directly with these children, around 50 for the time being, under the direction of our experienced, trained staff. We will give orientation as how to work and live in a new setting.
Your "reward" will be a feeling of success in that your hard work really mattered and that, as a result, a child is leading a more normal, more pleasant life than was the case before you reached out to them with your kindness, patience, and love. This feeling will last a lifetime.
