Leslie S.
Special Needs Provider Looking for Full Time / Part Time in the NE San Antonio Area Preferred — Kirby, TX
My name is Leslie. I am looking for part time / full time position providing child care in your home. I have a good amount of experience with special needs. My mother worked for a company called towards maximum independence as a respite care provider while I was a teenager and I helped her provide care for children and adults with special needs including but not limited to cerebral palsy, autism, downs syndrome, OCD and multiple chromosomal disorders. I also have a special needs child myself who has been diagnosed with aspergers (high functioning autism), epilepsy, ADHD and a brain cyst but despite his disorders is pretty high functioning. It was because of my experience with special needs children that I was able to recognize my own child's disorders. I will go over the specific care needed with you before determining if I am the right person for the job since I know you can't streamline each child into the "specifics" for there diagnoses, meaning each child is unique and will have different needs regardless of the diagnoses. I will usually Google your child's condition if I am not familiar with it so that I can have a better understanding of what it entails. I do lots of fun activities with the kids (I have my own supplies for pre-k learning and also arts and crafts), I also will bake cookies etc. with them occasionally if you provide the ingredients and utensils. *note* these activities are usually for the higher functioning children but we can discuss what you feel they are able to do. I also provide for children other than special needs. I have 5 biological children of my own and 3 step children so I am used to multitasking, I have a ton of patience and was also a Daisy troop leader in 2005-2006.
