I have been baby sitting and working with children my whole life. I started as a mother's helper in fifth grade, and have baby sat for different families ever since. I have however, baby sat for the same families since middle school to now. I have made very good connections with the children and their families that I baby sit for. One of the mothers wrote a letter of recommendation for me for my college application. I have experience with special needs children as well. My family friend's daughter has down-syndrome. I have known her since I was little and have grown up taking care of her.

Recent UVM Grad Looking For Additional Work
I'm a recent UVM grad, with a degree in Early Childhood Education, currently working as a teacher at a preschool in Burlington. In the last few years I have taught children from 4 months to 7 years old, including time as a para-educator for preschool aged children with intensive special needs.

Special Needs Provider
As a Communication Sciences and Disorders student aspiring to be a speech-language pathologist, I have not only learned a lot about special needs but have also participated in a number of activities with individuals who have special needs. For example, I have had exposure to many children with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder or Down Syndrome in the UVM speech clinic as well as in my special education courses. I have also worked as a substitute teacher and para-educator in an elementary school for the past year and have had to fill in for many positions involving students who are developmentally delayed. Such positions require me to work as a one-on-one aid with a student and support them throughout their school day with their academics, behavior, and social interactions. Lastly, I participated in an Alternative Spring Break trip at Challenged Child and Friends, Inc in Gainesville, Georgia where I spent a week volunteering in classes with varying levels of special needs.

Caregiver With Experience In Special Needs, Focus On Autism
I have been working with children with special needs since I was about 13 years old. I have worked in special needs preschools and special education settings in elementary schools. Recently, I worked in an intensive needs summer program at a community school where I work. During the school year, I work as the speech and language assistant. I have also completed a 40-hour program were I got intensive hands-on training working with children from ages 6-16+ with Autism. I have always had a passion for children with special needs. I feel that each child is unique and I can't waltz in with a magic formula. I need to get to know each child and family I work with on a one-on-one basis. I also feel that I can draw on my background to come up with lesson plans, daily schedules, and other tools to meet the needs of a child on the spot, tweaking things as I get to know them. While I am not fluent in American Sign Language by any stretch, I am able to have simple conversations in sign language and would be excited and willing to learn more signs if that was needed as part of a job. My professional background is in speech and language and I would be able and willing to augment the work of an SLP. My availability is mostly during the summer. I would love to go with your child as a 1:1 or PCA to his/her summer camp.
