Hello I started my new TA job on Monday. The job was advertised as a standard TA role. When I was in the interview they said their was a child who had some additional needs and needed help sometimes going toilet and help to get from A to B. I emphasise the sometimes as I was told the role was a classroom TA not SEND TA. I received my hours a week after getting the job titled SEN TA. I didn't read into it very much. I started yesterday to find I am basically 1-2-1 with one child who needs physio for 40 mins a day. I have been watching another TA give this physio to the child and I must admit I am anxious and worried to do it as the child finds it very sore and stressful. Should I be given specialist training to carry out physio? Also the child has 4 different wheel chairs including a standing moulder chairr, gaters, stirrups and a sitting chair that she is changed to and from every hour (ish). I feel the child is not getting the right care as apparently the last TA who looked after her left and her legs are not doing so well as the physio was not being carried out properly and nor was her speech and language therapy ( speech and language is another thing I am going to be given paper work on when they find it). I desperately want to do a good job and the child is amazing... takes everything in their stride but I feel like I have been thrown in at the deep end and worry I will not know everything. I also was supposed to shadow someone this week but the class teacher went home sick yesterday on my first day and the school is apparently understaffed so the person I should have shadowed had to go somewhere else. Day 2 and I was left alone with the child apart from when physio was given. Am I over reacting or is this wrong? I also feel like my guard is up as the Other TA said on my first day when I said I thought I was a general TA and what I was told at interview that I had been stitched up- great.
