Autism Specialist Specializing In Speech Language Development
I have been working as an Autism Specialist in early intervention for 2 years, and am currently studying to become a Speech Language Pathologist. I am trained in DIR/Floor time which is a play-based model that follows the child's interests and expands communication skills within a child's natural environment. It is based on the belief that children learn best when engaged (and having fun!) within the context of a safe, trusted relationship. It is a multi-disciplinary approach, melding communication, sensory processing, and cognitive development goals. I have experience with children of all ages with ASD and other diagnoses. I particularly excel with children who are shy, have anxiety, and are sensory defensive. My natural disposition is very patient, nurturing, and thoughtful, and I have always been able to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients. I also have experience with the Deaf community and am knowledgeable in ASL.

Loving Sister & Caregiver
Over the past year, I've been a personal care assistant for my twin sister M with Cerebral Palsy who is verbal, mobile and social. During our time together, I have been her means of transportation to social activities and weekly appointments. I've had the opportunity to spend time with the organization Highland Friendship Club where M meets other teens and young adults with various disabilities throughout the Twin Cities. I assist M with bathing, dressing and medication. As she grows older, she has been growing more independent and is learning how to do these things on her own. Lately, I've been pushing her to try these things on her own before assisting her. I am here to meet and assist other individuals with disabilities to the best of my abilities. I would love the opportunity to work with individuals with disabilities I haven't been exposed to before and interested in exploring the spectrum.

Experienced And Goofy Caregiver
Booked 2 times
My care-giving experience is extensive, which has exposed me to a wide range of cultures and backgrounds. I have worked with families who had children with ASD, CP, ADHD, etc. so I understand the responsibilities that are expected of me as a special needs caregiver. One thing that I have learned from care-giving is that each child has their individual needs. This realization has made me very skilled at addressing behavior issues. My most recent care-giving experiences have been for children ranging from 5-13 years old. I am actively engaged in volunteer activities usually involving homelessness or special needs, and because my vocational interest is to help others, I am transitioning into the public health sector. I am CPR/AED certified and a black belt. I do not drink, smoke, or do drugs. I have no criminal background and a clean driving record. But what makes me most qualified for care-giving is my friendliness, care for child development, and great work ethics.
