Meet Tanya
I have experience working with adults and children with developmental disabilities, and I find this kind of work very rewarding and enjoyable. Most recently I worked as a caregiver for an elderly woman experiencing the late stages of Alzheimer's disease. I also worked as a support person for a woman who is visually impaired. Prior to this, I was employed at a day center for adults with developmental disabilities. I supported my clients with many activities, including arts and crafts, music, walks in the neighborhood and gardening. I also assisted clients with toileting and at meal times. I was a volunteer at an elementary school for children with special needs, particularly those on the autistic spectrum. I worked one-on-one with children, practicing reading, playing, art, singing, computer skills, and academic work sheets, as well as helping teachers to run the classroom.
