I have worked with people with disabilities for 20 years and it will be blessing to work twenty more with them. There is no greater pleasure in my life than to serve those who need help. I take great pride in my abilities and care I provide for Dodd community. I understand the struggles a person with disabilities face everyday and I’m willing to take that journey with them. There have been plenty of positions and positive relationships I have built throughout years. I have been a house manager, schedule supervisor, a recreation coordinator and direct care specialist. So, I have been able to serve the Dodd community from different spectrums that enable me to see their needs and abilities from different angles.

c) Describe any specialized training or education you have received to prepare you to work with individuals with disabilities. Describe any areas of expertise.

I have worked 12 years for public and private schools. I have always been credited for being able to reach and connect with children with disability.

k) Describe how services will be provided in the event of your illness or emergency.

Unfortunately, sickness and illness happen and comes without much warning, However, I have taken this in consideration when applying for my independent certification. I plan on networking with other providers that are listed on the client’s ISP, so in case of an illness or emergency is placed at my door. I could cover the shift immediately.

l) Describe how you would address individual or family concerns.

I would address individuals or family concerns by listening to them, involving them in the day to day care that is provided and taking care of the issue right away.

However, concerns would be handle promptly.

m) Describe specific strategies for increasing community inclusion and involvement for individuals served.

My specific strategies for increasing community inclusion and involvement for individuals served is to ask the individual what he/she get enjoyment from and I would find events that cater to their needs.

This is just a hand full of activities people with disabilities could enjoy.

I’m a person who understand and support the Dodd community. I have spent endless hours volunteering in my community to help save the lives of misguided youths. I have an open mind, skills, patience and the heart to provide excellent services. My main objective is to help the world be a better place.
