25 Year Old Mom Looking for More Experience Babysitting Children With Special Needs
I'm a 25 year old mother of two (6 year old boy and 2 year old girl) looking to get more experience and earn a little money babysitting children and teens with special needs. Currently three times a week I help a friend care for her 16 year old grandson who had been diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy. He also has profound mental disabilities so through him I have experience with feeding, bathing, dressing, medicating, walking assistance, transportation, seizure control, diapering and other small tasks that he requires. I also took ASL in high school and college, although I'm afraid I've fallen out of practice. I know it's unusual, but ideally I would like to bring one or both of my children with me to reduce my own need for childcare. Neither are special needs, both are very sweet and good helpers. I can find my own childcare if required. I will gladly help out with housework as well (dishes, laundry, vacuuming, toy clean up, shopping). I love learning, I love children, and I would love to be able to give hard-working caregivers some much needed time to themselves.
