I have more than nine years experience working (full time) with individuals(adults mostly) with developmental disabilities. I have worked in the community with them, their residences and have experience in transportation as well. But mostly in a group setting. I have been told that my compassion towards them is extremely apparent. I am there for the individuals 100%. For their health and well being but also for quality of life. I also believe that promoting as much independence as one can have is so important!! When I have worked one to one or in someone's home that was where I felt I could make the m ost difference. I have worked in medically intensive houses as well as behaviorally intensive. I have well rounded experience and skills. I absolutely love caring for these individuals. I get out of it what I put in to it, if not more so. I also currently work for NYS and am required to pass an extensive background check, which I have done. I have experience with all ages and stages of life. ... more
