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.

My Special Needs
I am very passionate about special needs children. Their complexities are intriguing and challenging to me. I am eager to learn and participate as much as I can. My care is comprised of infants and toddlers with Aspergers, delayed development, medically fragile, premature, sensory integration disorder, and speech delayed. I created and maintained a predictable routine for the children. This way they knew what to expect and could ease into it comfortably. I was active in various therapies which encompassed, occupational, physical, speech, and ABA. (Applied Behavioral Analysis.) In working with autistic children; I provided various activities to exercise and strengthen core muscles, fine and gross motor skills. I sprinkled in all kinds of fun tactile activities too (finger painting with shaving cream, playing with rice, bare feet in grass or sand, etc.). I spent the day exploring, experiencing and learning through whatever medium the child responded to that day!
