College Student Specializing In Special Needs Child Care
Hi, my name's Jackson & I'm currently a student at the University of Central Missouri studying Early Childhood Special Education. I have experience working with a wide variety of children/young adults with disabilities in many different settings for more than three years now. I have worked in the Missouri State Schools for the Severely Disabled, the YMCA of Greater Kansas City working with children with Autism, volunteering in the Atchison Kansas Public School District, the Warrensburg Public School District, and at St. Patrick's Catholic School in Kansas City, MO working with preschool and elementary aged students. I also helped my alma mater (St. Pius X High School) create a peer mentor program for students with special needs that is still running today.

Part Time Availability for Special Needs Children and Teenagers
I have worked in a behavioral health-care setting for a total of 9 years. I worked at a home for boys, and currently work part time at a behavioral health hospital. Before that, I did part time nannying and babysitting. Because of my job at the hospital, I have a background check done on me once a year. I have excellent communication skills and am very tenacious. At the hospital, I work on a unit with 13 teenage girls for 8 hours at a time, with one other staff member. We work with children with all types of behavioral disorders such as: ADHD, ADD, ODD, RAD (attachment disorder), Autism, and OCD. You name it, I have probably worked with that type of child. Maybe, your situation isn't as complicated as that. I say all this to let you know I have experience with a variety of special needs children and teenagers. I love a good challenge. Of course, simple playing and helping with homework and errands is also welcome.

Special Needs And/or Babysitting
I am an adult with autism who has had experience in both being cared for, and caring for other students in my special class. It pains me how so many caretakers do not treat their patients like real people. I want to be a positive influence, to show that you can help children with special needs without acting like they are "missing a puzzle piece". I have felt the struggle from the inside first-hand, and would like to be a good caretaker for your experience.

I consider myself a patient and lifelong learner, and am passionate about reaching for full potential with others. I am looking for summer opportunities starting ASAP through August 11th, 2017 and eager to help meet unique needs of individuals and households. References are available upon request.

Part Time Companion
I had a daughter who died of Cancer at 13 years old. I took care of all her needs; not the experience I am happy to have gained. I drove a school bus for special needs for several years. I also co managed a retirement community for several months. Many of the seniors had disabilities of many degrees. My passion for care giving comes from my daughter being so ill and suffering so much. After dealing with Senior citizens; I became very empathetic with folks who don't get the type of compassion and respect that they deserved. Every person, young or old deserve to be treated with compassion and dignity.

Amber is my name and childcare is my claim to fame.
Child care isn't something for everyone. Children are all different with different personalities, wants, and needs. That is why I love what I do. Beyond the normal cleaning, feeding, and teaching, I get to be involved with young ones who have the world as their oyster. I love doing crafts, baking and play music with them to get their creative gears working! My experience ranges from basic childcare, to creating and implementing curriculum as well as currently working as a paraprofessional for a 5-year-old autistic child. I love what I do and would love to be there for you!
