My mother worked in a group home while I was growing up and I was raised around special needs individuals my entire life. I also have a special needs uncle, so essentially I am just very comfortable around those with special needs. Unsurprisingly, I found myself working with special needs as well once I became an adult. For the last year I have worked daily with a pair of siblings aged 18 and 21, both with severe autism as well as g-tubes. I am an extremely patient person which is why I work so well with special needs children and adults. I m also very creative and adventurous, so your child won t be bored or sat in front of s television while under my care. I love working with special needs and with children in general.
