I have over 10 years of experience babysitting for children of all ages (newborn +) and absolutely love working with children! I have a degree in Psychology from Oberlin College where I focused on child development and am now continuing this work in a Clinical Psychology PhD program. My research and clinical focus is on childhood ADHD, but I have experience working with both typically developing children and those with a range of special needs and behavioral problems. I have worked with children in a variety of settings (e. g., classroom, sports coach, long-term nanny, counselor). Currently I am available for 1-2 regularly scheduled times or occasional date-night sitting (week or weekend).

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.
