Shira’s Bio

I'm fun, creative, outgoing, and have a wide range of talents! I have a great can-do friendly attitude. I have worked with special needs youth since 2008. I have worked at Little City Foundation, with Glenkirk independent special needs aids program, and as a school aid for children with Autism. I also have my Bachelor's degree in psychology, a dual Masters degree in Counseling Psychology and Art Therapy, and will have my LPC within 90 days. I'm pretty much the most qualified special needs childcare provider you could ever ask for, at a fraction of the cost my training would usually go for. It's like having your therapist at home with your kids. Why do I do this? Well, I'm a recent graduate. Also, I believe that it's hard to find someone you can trust with your special needs child when you're not at home. Families of special needs children deserve caregivers who know what they're doing. If this interests you, let me know!
