I have been doing freelance childcare for about 7 years, mainly for families with children on the autism spectrum or with other behavioral challenges. I grew up with a sibling with special needs, so I know firsthand how hard it can be to find reliable and trustworthy people who are equipped to adapt to children with special needs and/or behavioral challenges. I hope to provide parents with some peace of mind by providing kind, considerate care for their children, taking into account each child's specific needs and differences. When there are specific discipline strategies in place, it is important to me to help parents provide consistency by following those strategies during the time I spend with the children. I love doing arts and crafts, as well as reading and storytelling. I'm happy to provide homework help, including help with Spanish language study. Ultimately, I aim to be a fun, supportive, Read more and firm presence for the children I care for, and a reliable resource for their parents. I am looking for occasional gigs, as well as recurring jobs.
