Special Needs Provider
Avg response < 18 hrs
Your child brings love, light, and new perspective to your life, but he/she also creates needs and responsibilities that are difficult to manage on your own. In my four years of special needs care, I have partnered with parents, teachers, and doctors to equip and empower the children and families in my care. To do so, I work with my clients to: * Create and coordinate daily schedules, including doctor's appointments, classes, and play dates *Learn and manage special needs, including medication and feeding schedules, dietary restrictions, physical care, medical needs, and education *Develop a schedule, routine, and plan that meets their needs, supports their care, and empowers the family in their everyday lives Additionally, I offer a fluency in ASL, critical thinking skills, and an efficient work ethic. Above all, I am passionate about offering the opportunities and resources needed to encourage each individual to grow, learn, and experience everything life has to offer.

Special Needs Care Provider
I have been fortunate to know how to care, communicate, and build friendships with those with special needs from an early age. Growing up my mom, who is still a child care provider, cared for a quadriplegic man and a young boy with spina bifida. When she cared for them I came along and at that age had already developed an interest in medicine. I have continued my education in pursuit of becoming a pediatric Physician Assistant. Outside my schooling I have volunteered with Orlando s Miracle League and Florida Hospital s Children Hospital. My greatest love is my experience working in Kenya , where I intend to move and work once finishing grad school.

Loving & Experience Special Needs Caregiver Looking For A Family To Help!
Having spent most of my time in the work force as a special needs nanny, I cannot speak more about how grateful I am to have been given the opportunity to care for such kind, loving, and day brightening children who have undoubtedly taught me more than I could ever hope to have taught them. Having a mother who worked as a special needs nurse, I spent most of my free time volunteering at Special Olympics and bi-weekly special needs dances. I think what I have learned most about working with special needs children and adults alike, is that it is not about getting them to understand how we see the world, it is understanding how they see the world and adapting to it. I have found that if you figure out a schedule to their life that meets everyone's expectations, they will thrive. It is almost hard to say that seeing the joy on their faces everyday is work, but I am also very well versed in the not so fun aspects. I am no stranger to temper tantrums, or repetition of what needs to be done next. I am also both comfortable and familiar with the daily tasks of a nanny such as, errand running, pick ups/ drop offs, meal prep, play time, anything that can help the parents in any way!
