Care Giver For Children With Autism
I have spent 3 years babysitting for a family with two autistic children. I absolutely adore them. I have helped the family potty train both children, as well as work on verbal and social skills. There are so many activities I have learned to do, and am comfortable doing with autistic children. On top of this I am a swim instructor, and comfortable teaching special needs children water safety.
Along with this I have grown up with a close blind friend. I have learned him over the years (to read and to write), as well side-a-guide, homework help, computer skills, and more.
I know how to work with guide dogs, as well as autism heels dogs.
