Meet Carina
I have had experience with special needs children since I was younger. My younger cousin was born with multiple disabilities which affect him both mentally and physically. I have taken part in his various therapies and have been one of the few people privileged enough to be trusted to watch him. I have learned his medications and how to use his oxygen tanks. Recently, my family has taken in a special needs 3-year-old as our foster child who suffers from shaken baby syndrome and due to this trauma suffered a stroke and was paralyzed on his left side. Although he is doing much better he suffers physically and mentally for the abuse he went through and has many delays. He also suffers emotionally in some aspects and frequently has what we believe to be flash backs. I have watched him over night and for extended periods of time. I know how to handle it if he has a seizure, I know how to handle his asthma including his nebulizer. I also help with his medicines and have been an active part in his cognitive development and progress and have worked with him in physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Living with a child with special needs has taught me so much and we couldn't love him more!
Throughout my life I have also taken care of my aunt with down syndrome and have had experience with being part of her life.
Although I have no paid experience, I do not believe that there is any substitute for living and helping care for your loved ones who are suffering from disabilities.
