Special Needs For Special Needs!
Being someone who was born with hearing loss that I struggled with as a child, I know how frustrating and beautiful it can be to be different. I've worked with those with Aspergers, Parkinson's, Dementia, and many others both in the private care sector and in my personal life. My most recent long-term care job was with a little girl with psychogenic blackouts that was linked to her panic and anxiety disorders. I hope to hear from you and whoever it is that might need care so that I can help in whatever way possible.
