Special Needs Para-Educator/Care-Giver, Available Part-time

Highly experienced behavior analyst with crisis prevention/management background. Prior Special Needs Paraprofessional in a School District, where I received inclusive experience assisting individuals with multiple disabilities ranging in severity. In my prior role, I provided technical physical care, individual and group-based instruction to students with cognitive disabilities/developmental delays. I was assigned to severe needs cases and worked co-actively with onsite therapists/certified staff implementing strategies focused on advancing speech, social interactions, fine motor skills, life skills, occupational therapy and physical therapy. My focus is on Autism Spectrum Disorder as I have concentrated experience with non-verbal, low functioning and high functioning. As a unique individual, I have a natural ability to connect and build mutual rapport.

Jess worked for me for almost a year (error on which trying to remove) with my 8 year son, ASD and ADHD. He will be going to a wonderful residential facility. Aside from the basic characteristics of a great employee, Jess is not even close to someone who is a great staff member. Jess is an extraordinary person who has the knowledge, skills, compassion and patience to help your child thrive in a world where special needs children are often misunderstood. As someone who raised her brother, there is nothing she can't handle. She helped my child with life skills, coping strategies, academics, and was able to regulate his severe behavior issues. As a single mom, Jess' experience in crisis management has helped my son and me. When my child was hospitalized, Jess visited him daily and everyone asked who she was since she was and remains the only person who can regulate him. Grab her before someone else does and please keep her in the neighborhood as I will miss her!
