Experienced Nanny - Babysitter - Children With Special Needs
I worked as a Preschool Teacher Aide through the ARC for 2 year with children who have special needs. I assisted with toileting, feeding, gross and fine motor skills, and music. I've assisted children with special needs from ages 2-5. Varying from Autism, Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and more. I have also worked as a worship leader for 2 summers at Niagara Adventure Camp, ages 8-18. When in highschool, I used to babysit for several families after school as well as assist in the kindergarten classroom. I have taken several college courses in childhood development, developmental disabilities, and children's literature. I know the very basics of ASL - American Sign Language. For example, words like: Mom, Dad, thirsty, eat, more please, sit down, stand up, help, work, etc.. I have also completed 15 hours of observation at a Dayhab through the ARC.
