I have worked for multiple companies as a respite care provider for special needs kids. I worked for Limitless Equine Program which is an organization dedicated to special needs kids where I gave horse riding, dance, and swim lessons. I do not do overnight activities due to liability reasons and safety; however, I do travel to nearby destinations and to homes and provide relief for parents.

I currently work full-time at a Special Recreation Association where I do programing for adults with intellectual disabilities and run the Special Olympics program. I previously worked at a Child Care Center in Iowa that catered to children with disabilities. I was in charge of the school age program and assessed clients needs through IEPs and observation. I am a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist and am certified in universal precautions, CPR, CPI, and first aid. I have been a respite provider for 9 years and enjoy working with kids. I have transportation available and am able to work flexible hours.

My mother is a special education teacher and I was always around for her push for inclusion of all students. Many of the kids felt important walking off with me in school. I coached Special Olympics and hosted events like movies and bowling to include kids with special needs by pairing them up with a buddy.

I was a care provider in IL for 20 years and recently moved to WA. I do not have a license in WA but was licensed and certified for those 20 years in Illinois. I wills look after grandma or mom as if she were my own as we took care of my aging family members at home in their senior years.

I have a 5. 5-year-old special needs daughter. As a special needs mother this is one area that is near and dear to my heart. I know there are way too few people willing to help us out when we need a helping hand. And so few people we actually trust when it comes to our little hero's... My daughter has had 23 surgeries to date, (with many more to come) She has a rare genetic disorder. And people are often afraid to be friends with her. And because of that, It's hard to get help. So, I know how hard it is to get help... I have a lot of experience with her special needs. And special super hero children don't scare me.....
