Young, Experienced Sitter For Children With Special Needs!
Hello my name is Mia and I am passionate about caring for children and adults with Intellectual and Development Disabilities (IDDs). Growing up with a sibling who has Autism, I was introduced to the IDD community at a young age. I started assisting in the special ed rooms in elementary, eventually becoming passionate well into middle and high school. In high school, I was president of a program, attended multiple 1 week special needs summer camps, and spent almost everyday eating lunch with my buddies in the special ed classroom. By senior year, I worked part-time as a professional Caretaker for children with disabilities, caretaking 15-20 hours a week for a 13year old girl who had autism and severe epilepsy. While I wanted to study special education, I decided to study International Relations in the hopes of passing more comprehensive laws for adults with IDDs in lesser developed countries. I'm excited to care for children with disabilities again locally!
