I'm an experienced, independent/freelance Respite Worker (I am not an agency worker) living and working in St. John's, and its suburbs, CBS, and Holyrood.

Compassionate, caring, and reliable, I am a professional 'experienced with "Neuro-Diverse", exceptionally challenging children, and adults with: ASD, ADHD, OCD, behavioural challenges, anger, and impulse control issues.
