My previous experience includes:
- 7 years working as a home caregiver for children with multiple disabilities. I was responsible for total care of children with profound disabilities (and siblings) including all personal care, tube feeding and medications, seizure monitoring and activities. I developed several wonderful, long-term relationships with families and took on a wide variety of responsibilities based on their needs. In addition to providing care at home and in the community, I also served as a one-on-one aide for these kids at overnight and day programs (camps/respite programs).
- Working as an assistant teacher in a summer program for children with profound developmental disabilities. I was responsible for coordinating and providing daily care and working towards functional/communication goals for 12 children, who were non-ambulatory and nonverbal, during a summer respite program. I also supervised and trained classroom staff in the personal care needs of our students. Many of our students had feeding tubes, trachs and seizures.
- Volunteering in a swimming and music program for young children at United Cerebral Palsy in Cleveland, OH. I was mainly responsible for personal care and supporting children (ages 4-8 with severe cerebral palsy and developmental delays) in the pool.
- Working as a staff member at residential and day programs for children and adults with disabilities. These programs served people with physical, developmental and behavioral disabilities, and I was responsible for all personal care and creating fun and engaging activities for my campers.
- Volunteering at the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital for Rehabilitation, where I helped in a therapy program that provides alternative/augmentative communication systems for children who are non-verbal.
- Volunteering at Yale-New Haven Hospital and Texas Children's Hospital to work with infants, toddlers and children with complex, chronic medical conditions
- Providing vocational programs for children with visual impairments at the Cleveland Sight Center during a Saturday youth program.
- Volunteering one-on-one with children with physical disabilities during adapted recreation activities with Youth Challenge (non-profit in Cleveland, OH).
