Mairead’s Bio

I've been working with adolescents and young adults (15-22) who have severe special needs for the past two years. My job is direct care in a residential setting, so I focus on ADLs, social interaction, and some homework. I have experience with deaf students and students who use ASL and communication devices for their expressive language skills. I work with students who have rare syndromes and disorders and medical needs. I do G-Tube feedings on a regular basis and follow meal plans for other students. Most of the students I work with have balance issues and I try to help with any OT or PT exercises. I'm used to dealing with behaviors and following behavior support plans.

I'm looking for a special needs care job, but would not be opposed to a senior/companion care job.
