"I recently began working with a 6-year-old boy with a medical diagnosis of autism who was considered nonverbal and low functioning as he primarily communicates through echolalia and scripting. One day, I decided to trial an AAC device with him to see if he could understand the cause and effect.  After exploring the buttons for a few minutes, pressing buttons that spoke words like want, play, eat, drink, some, up, down, yes, no, stop, go etc, he found the keyboard and typed out the message “I fresh.” And then looked at me with the biggest, proudest grin I have ever seen! I smiled right back and replied, “Yes you ARE fresh my friend!” and gave him a big hug!" - Brittney B, ASA Staffing Employee of the Year

“I love being able to help people and connect when they are at their most vulnerable.” - Kristina P

“It's tough to pinpoint a favorite nursing memory.

"My favorite thing about being a physical therapist is helping people and being shown appreciation in return." - Octavia C

 

 

"My last night working a 13-week contract, the employees on my unit threw me a huge carry-in and that was a pretty special feeling." - Malcolm S

 

 

"I have many favorite work memories up to this point because I enjoy working with students who have multiple disabilities.

Nothing gives me greater joy than exiting a student when he or she no longer needs services." - Jackie K

 

 

"My favorite memory would be when one of my patients spoke for the first time. We had been working for weeks...I walked in and said hello as I always did not expect a response and all of a sudden I heard a muffled "hey"! Blew me away..." - Kenya J
