I have babysat for many families in my neighborhood and can provide at least 6 references. I worked at a summer camp for children aged 5-14. I was the "music counselor" and held music/singing/dance sessions for the children. I also worked as a clinician for a year where I worked with children age 6-16 years old who had cognitive problems along with ADD/ADHD. I implemented specific skill building exercises to improve their cognitive abilities. I also worked as a youth counselor for a year at a lockdown facility for adolescent females with psychiatric problems. This job involved educating the girls on topics dealing with social living skills, stress management, and emotional control. The girls needed total supervision, dedication, understanding, and redirection.
