Meet Carmen

I love children.
I have 3 boys (19, 18 and 16). My 16-year-old died in 2017, he was very disabled and died of natural causes.

I met my son with special needs in 2010, when he was 9. At the time his physical and mental abilities were equivalent to a 9-month-old. Nonverbal, non mobile, feeding tube a lot of disabilities. I saw more in him and within 6 months he could stand and walk a little bit. In a year he could walk exclusively on his own. Although his developmental doctor identified with an age equivalent of 3 or 4, I saw more. When he was 15 I discovered he could read.
I miss working with children and helping them through life's journey.

I believe reading help children through all aspects of educational growth and life.

Through my son's challenges, I enrolled in University and became a Special needs advocate to help him receive the appropriate education. I retired from the Air Force after 22 years to care for my boys after my husbands death in 2014.

Carmen was wonderful with my children. She was always prompt and always had things to help my autistic son with. Thanks to her, his potty training advanced far more than we were able to do in a very short time. I would recommend her for any kids, especially ones with special needs.
