Working with people with disabilities:
Over 45 years combined services & experience working with individuals with disabilities.
I grew up with a sister and an uncle who were blind and had other disabilities. From the time I was a child I assisted them as a guide around home, town and events.
I was a guide, reader and assistant throughout college for my sister as well in the early 1980's.
Throughout much of the 1980"s, I assisted with interpreting for ASL (American Sign Language).
I worked as a physical Therapy Assistant for 14 months in Boise Idaho working with adults who had traumatic brain injuries or who were developmentally delayed. 1990 - 1991
I have raised a child who has Autism and other amazing gifts.And I am still her part time or sometimes advocate or care provider.
Over the years between 1993 to the present time, I've worked with Autistic, DD clients and family as well as the elderly.
For decades I have worked 2 to 3 jobs, Some jobs have or had multiple duties: Jobs & duties have often overlapped.
