I'm not sure if this is the right area to advertise so if it isn't please forgive me.

I'm a 28yr old special needs nanny who has recently transferred to a mainstream job (so I can study again). However I'm keen to keep up my work with special needs children on an informal basis.

I'm looking for a family/families who either need help at weekends or in the holidays 25/07/05- 07/08/05 or 20/08/05- 28/08/05.

I have worked both as a private nanny, and with childrens services, teaching and caring for children with numerous needs. This includes DS, Autism, CP, Rhett's, ADHD, challenging behaviour, and non identified disorders. I've had training for gastro feeds, epilepsy management, ABA (though I'd need a quick reminder), behaviour management. I've also worked alongside speech therapists, OT and physios for the past 4 years.

If anyone is interested then please either leave a message or email me at I would be very happy to send a copy of my CV and provide references.

I live in the richmond/twickenham area though would be happy to travel. It's also worth noting the reason I'm advertising is that I've just moved to the area and therefore don't know of any other leads.

Thankyou, victoria Holt.

Have just emailed you about passing your info on. Let me know if you don't get it.

I have tried replying to your email but for some reason can't send it, so I hope you don't mind me posting it here.........

I'm not sure I would be a suitable candidate, My
training in ABA came about because I was a nanny for a
little boy with Autism in America. I was taught the
principles of ABA and how to follow the home
programme. I was also given lea way to set up
programmes I thought necessary to home life (mainly
self care, tidying). However i am NOT a qualified ABA
teacher. Also I haven't done any work with ABA for
four years.

This said, I am in awe of how successful the programme
can be for some children and would very definitely be
interested in becoming involved again.

If you think that someone would be interested then I
would post on the site. Would you mind giving me the
full address?
Yours, Victoria Holt.

Victoria, I was thinking of seeing if I can find you a family or families who want a nanny or just extra pair of hands, NOT an ABA tutor. But someone who has an idea of ABA principles is always welcome. You won't be able to post to the site yourself, you have to be a member, but I'd be happy to do it for you.
