I am a 20-year-old college student who lives at home. I have an older brother with Down Syndrome who I have had to help take care of all my life. I have had experience with bathing, cooking, hand feeding, and the typical things a special needs child may require. I also work for a family a few hours a week who has a son with Aspergers. He is 9 years old and requires a lot of guidance, physical assistance, and care. I have had a lot of experience with the special needs which has made me mature, responsible, and patient.
