Efia Lewis

Experienced Special Needs Child Care Provider

Sitter in Freeport

My name is Efia and I currently work part time in a program for children with autism. I've been working with children with autism for over 5 years and absolutely love it. I work with the children in a residential program so my duties include child care/support, teaching life/communication skills, homework assistance, participation in indoor/outdoor activities, transporting to school/after-school programs, cooking meals, and doing chores. I assist children with learning skills necessary to become independent adults. I believe that every child can learn. It just takes patience. I'm certified in medication administration and CPR. I have worked with children who used wheelchairs, were nonverbal, needed Epipen/diastat, required special diets/eating guidelines, required calming techniques, medication administration, training using communication devices (PECs book/iPad), and more. I'm not only restricted to working with children with special needs. I am willing working with all children. I current work with kids 9-18 years of age but can also work with kids as young as 1 years old. I can work in the morning on week days and any time on weekends.

Efia has worked alongside myself as a part time nanny for an Upper West Side family that had seven children. Efias prior experience with autistic teen youth at a full time care facility within Nassau County had prepared her to help the family with their special needs son who was 13 at the time. I furthermore know Efias personal character from attending and becoming good friends at Queens College. She is an ambitious, thoughtful and has the biggest heart.
