Special Needs Provider
I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with kids with special needs. I love working with people of all ages. I have a passion for teaching and caring for others. I have never worked with someone with special needs, but I am very patient and I have a good heart. I try to be very friendly and I signed up to be part of the Best Buddies program in my school. I was never given the opportunity to be paired with someone, however. I am planning to mentor high school students in my college as I love being a positive influence in someone's life.

My Experience With People With Special Needs (Cerebral Palsy)
I helped out for a couple years with my friends brother who is the same age as me, but has the mentality of a 3-year-old. He has a strong case of Cerebral Palsy disorder. He cannot do anything on his own. He cannot speak, move, nothing. He is fed through a tube from his stomach, he wears diapers, and has to be bathed daily, to keep his incision areas very sterile. Also, I have a friend who is 3 years older than me, a male, who also has Cerebral Palsy. He can do more things on his own though. He can drive, carefully. He can shower. He needs help eating, its hard for him to bring the food to his mouth with a fork or anything, he has to drink with a straw, and it is still somewhat difficult. He needs help having his house cleaned. And his bed made and laundry, etc. I have been there to help him for years now and would do it everyday if I could!
Carol G.|Gig Harbor, WA
$15-25/hr • 10 yrs exp
My name is Carol. It has been a joy to be working for the Bainbridge Island School District for 20 years. However, the time has come for me to spread my wings and move on to something new and I have retired. When I was young, I wanted to be a nurse. I volunteered as a JANGO which was the military dependent version of a Candystriper. I babysat for many years. After college, I married and was a stay-at-home mom. I had two lively and wonderful boys. The oldest was diagnosed with cancer at age 11. He received treatment but eventually that ugly disease took his life and we lost him at age 14. His illness and death led me to wanting to care for others. I worked with Hospice and eventually began with the schools and into Special Education. I especially enjoy working with children with ASD. I am a grandmother to a sweet 7-year-old girl. We do many things together and I have introduced her to music of all kinds. She also enjoys making "projects!" Please contact me if you are interested in my services. PS. I will be working on getting the CPR Certification in August.

Caregiver For DD
My work history- I have worked as an IP with a non-verbal Down Syndrome gentleman, care has ranged from home health, assisted living, nursing homes, assisted living and med tech positions, even to include time working for a non-profit drug addicted infants facility. I have enjoyed my work as a health professional and the many different opportunities, including my work as a Phlebotomist with medical research. Sounds like a lot of moving around and it was, as a prior military wife, that flexibility was needed. A few years ago I was able to pursue a particular passion and now continue to educate myself, as I work under my Cosmetology license in a salon in Seattle. Ferocious Angels. I enjoy the flexibility I have with my job but am looking to care for some little ones, in some of my extra time. I know I can be a valuable help to one of my community families.
