I have a lifetime of experience of caring for those with Special Needs. My older sister has Down Syndrome and I have been helping her out in many ways my entire life. I have done 10 plus years of volunteering for Special Olympics and other nonprofits and have gained valuable experience helping those with autism, physical disabilities, and other learning disabilities. I have done overnight camps where we cared for those with disabilities. I have a background in medicine being a master's of biomedical sciences student and a future medical student so I am very comfortable with anyone's need. I am CPR and First Aid certified.
