Experienced Direct Support Professional
Working with individuals with special needs is something that is dear to my heart. I have a younger brother with special needs, who still lives at home, and I am very active in his life. As far as field experience I have been working in a residential setting for the past 6 yrs . I am certified in adult CPR/First Aid, DDD overview, Preventing Abuse and Neglects, and Medication Administration. Prior to working in the field I studied Community Health at Delaware State University. I have worked with individuals with various diagnosis including autism spectrum, down syndrome, pervasive developmental disorder, bipolar. I have worked with both ambulatory and non-ambulatory individuals, and I am comfortable with giving all levels of care including bathing, toileting, and feeding.
