Avg response < 20 hrs
Hi my name is Alisa and I have a special needs sibling and a professional caregiver. I am CPR certified with 26 years of experience working with individuals with Autism and special needs. I have worked with high and low learners (with an emphasis on nonverbal individuals). I have spent the last 3 years being a provider, a family resource coordinator for individuals with intellectual & developmental disabilities, and a volunteer for individuals with special needs. I have a fundamental approach when working with children and young adults who are unique. I understand that just because they do not communicate 'normal' this does not mean they don't understand. I know to give short commands and not to intrude in their space. I understand that they have a need for independence and want a guidance. I like to think of my style as life coaching and being a protector. I'm available for short or long term care. I'm currently not accepting clients who are in waiver programs (CFC, HCS, & CLASS).

Full Time Special Needs Caregiver
Unfortunately at this time I do not have any major experience working with children with special needs. I have a passion for working with all children. In high school, I had the amazing opportunity through the PALS program working with a wonderful middle school aged girl who was blind and deaf. The year long opportunity was incredibly rewarding. I also have personal family experience with conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, seizures and hard of hearing. I am very quick to learn any skills that may be needed to assist the special needs of any child.
