Loving, Experienced Caregiver With A Special Passion For Special Needs
Avg response < 12 hrs
I began working with individuals with special needs in the 8th grade with a program at my school. I continued participating in the group throughout my high school years. After graduation, I obtained a job with a school for children having special needs. I worked in a public school for two years as a personal care assistant for a young man with Down syndrome and autism. This care consisted of teaching him his educational assignments each day as well as teaching him how to become more independent in his daily life. Throughout these two years, I held a part-time job on the side. I had two clients with this company to whom I would give at home care one or more times each week. Both of these clients had cerebral palsy. I have had a passion for children for as long as I can remember. My passion for those with special needs has been growing for a long time. I am open to working with most any need and am willing to learn about the individual needs that come with each client. I have experience with age groups from 3 to 80 and have loved each experience. I am more comfortable with children and teenagers than I am with adults, but am willing to consider caring for an adult. When I have a client, I am fully committed to doing whatever I can to assist them and allow them to gain as much independence as possible. I now have a 2-year-old and a 6-month-old of my own. My daughter and I spend time homeschooling each day (preschool material). My husband and I look forward to adding to our family in the not too distant future. I am looking to give care in our home. I have experience balancing the needs of my children with those of the children I am caring for, giving your children as much love and attention as I give to mine. I have found that everyone involved has a great time. My kids love spending time with other children, and I haven't met a child yet that hasn't enjoyed being with them. I love working with children of any age and look forward to finding a new client very soon. I have completed the requirements to become a certified para-educator in the state of Pennsylvania and am currently working toward obtaining a degree in Early Childhood Education. I will provide a copy of my background check upon request. I was formerly certified in first aid, CPR and AED. Unfortunately, those certifications have expired, but I do try to stay informed on utilizing them.

Part Time Care Giver Available
I have previous experience with a child that is developmentally delayed. I also have experience caring for terminally ill children. I am comfortable providing care for children under these circumstances and supporting the parents in the journey. I would be willing to run errands, do housework, yard work, or care for the children while you took a well deserved break. All of my experience was an unpaid, personal life changing gift that I look forward to sharing with someone else.

I love working with children and have tons of experience. I have worked with children, of all ages-from newborns to 12+ years, with disabilities and who have certain needs that need to be met. I am a swim team coach and have an active CPR certification. I myself have 6 siblings and I can understand how crazy a household can be. My niece and my cousin were born with heart problems and had to take their milk through a nose tube with certain formulas and such so I understand how to deal with medical reasons. When I was in high school, I worked with the special needs children so I understand their needs too.
