I have been working with children for about 9 years. I have about 7 years of nanny/ babysitting/personal assistant experience and 3 years of experience working one-on-one with children who have special needs (including: Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and specific learning disorders). The last two years I have been working as a Behavior Interventionist where I assist my clients in the school setting. The method of therapy I have used is called "Floortime" (or the DIR method) which is a relationship based approach that takes into account each child's individual developmental differences (for more information, visit https://profectum.org/about ). I also received my Bachelors degree in Speech and Language Pathology and will be going for my Masters in a year or two to become a Speech Therapist. With all of that said, I absolutely love working with children and believe fully that it is my calling.
