Experienced Special Needs Nanny Looking For Temporary, Occasional Or Part-Time Position
I began working with special needs children as a nanny in 2012, and since then have held positions with three families. I've cared for children on the autism spectrum, and have experience with ODD and ADHD as well. My duties in these positions included some basic childcare; I picked them up from school, helped with homework, light housekeeping, meal prep, etc. In addition to this, I've had the opportunity to work alongside in-home ABA therapists during the position and have learned a lot about how to best play, interact and meet the needs of a child on the spectrum. Since beginning work with special needs children, I've decided it's definitely where my heart is career wise, and I intend to begin studying this summer, eventually to become a certified therapist. I love playing outdoors, swimming, music, and creatively adapting with any activities that might meet your child's needs. I believe it's important to always bring patience, enthusiasm, and empathy to a position, and can't wait to meet and start with a new family!
Please note: I currently have a summer position, but will be off and available for short-term, temporary, or occasional positions all summer apart from the last two weeks of July. I am available weekends year round.
