Brooke’s Bio

Hi, I used to babysit when I was young, and my grandmother had a daycare I helped out at. I also spent a year working with adults with profound intellectual, or developmental disabilities. I seem to have an innate love for people with Autism, I just think it's so cool getting to know how to communicate with them, and how to encourage them so they can be healthy and happy. Sometimes a little encouragement and supervision is all that's needed, but I'm also comfortable (with orientation from guardian) in dealing with any of the following: challenging behaviors (pika, screaming, hair pulling, etc.), practicing with PEC system or vantage/ipad or even just gestural communication, task analysis activities with hand over hand if needed for new skills, pretty much you name it. Ideally I'd love to find a family that wanted a live in nanny for Autistic child or young adult, or a position for someone who wants seriously consistent care and skills training. I'm a DSP and hoping to do a BHP class soon. I wouldn't mind watching multiple children with no more than 2 with special needs. I like reading, art projects, and playing outside, and if there's time I'll wash some dishes or take the dog out, cleaning tasks are good skills to learn the younger the better, especially if you can make it fun and safe. Thank you for your consideration.
