College Student With Special Needs Experience

(1)
Hi! I'm Anna and I'm a college student in Southern Connecticut studying Special Education, For the past 9 years, I have had the privilege to work with many amazing children and adults with special needs, as well as many amazing typical children. From summer camps to babysitting, to being an after school counselor, to being a paraprofessional, and an adult respite provider, I have worked in many different environments with people of all ages and abilities. Working with children is truly a passion of mine, and I make it a goal of mine to always make sure the children I care for are in a happy, safe and welcoming environment. As a future teacher, I am responsible and reliable, and I have the skills to work with children of all backgrounds. I'm outgoing and caring, and knowledgeable. I have been CPR, First Aid trained.

Anna's official title was PCA (Personal Care Attendant), but we call her "friend." She spent 12 hours on the weekend (6 on Sat/6 on Sun) with our son E., who has Down syndrome plus mental health issues. She started with E. when he was 21, and was with him/us for almost two years. E. moved into a group home, so we don't have our grant anymore (she was paid through the grant). Even still, she goes to visit with him and maintain their connection. She is patient, kind, positive, and creative. She quickly got to know E. well and read his moods, and could instantly adjust their planned activities. When E. would be stubborn, or "off in his own world," and unreachable, Anna could find ways to make the most of their time together. Anna became a member of our family, and we miss seeing her smiling face every weekend. Seeing her with E., and knowing her dedication to people like him of all ages, I can without hesitation recommend Anna to care for your loved ones, special needs or not.
