Looking for a special needs in home caregiver? As a trained Relationship Development Intervention - Extender, from one of the top Autism school in the country, the Autism Group Inc. out of San Diego California, I am one the most educated and qualified paraprofessionals in Northwest Arkansas. I have worked with special needs children ages 1 to 14 years in private home care as well as for the Bentonville Public School System and the Sunshine School. I have experience with disorders such as, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Seizure Disorders, mitochondrial disease and more.
I am comfortable tube feeding, feeding by hand, toilet training, changing diapers, providing breathing treatments, giving medication, bathing, and taking care of sick children. I am comfortable working with a mix of typical and special needs children, teens and adults.
I believe the best approach to learning is hands on experience and FUN! My clients and I enjoy daily outings. I provide transportation, and have a car seat for toddlers. I also make an education plan specifically tailored to your child. I believe in improving quality of live for each child with hand.
