I am a former CNA and EMT, and am CPR certified.
My experience comes from helping my mentally disabled ex-sister-in-law, for the past 15 years, as well as my jobs as certified nursing assistant (pediatric and adult home care 8 years, and 3 years at a Medical Center).
My specialty is autism and autism spectrum disorders, mental retardation, OCD, and mental illness and dementia/ Alzheimer's disease. I have also worked with children and adults with Angelman's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and Multiple Sclerosis, and am willing to learn any and all other disabilities.
I also have some ASL skills, as my former foster child was speech delayed and I learned and taught him about 40 different signs to communicate his basic needs.
I am passionate at what I do. I truly feel, that parents and loved ones of disabled children and adults are the true heroes, and don't often get the credit they deserve.
Please contact me for additional information.
