Family Summary:

The Nanny Joynt is so happy to be working with this wonderful family in Chandler.  Nannies this is an amazing position for a candidate who has special needs experience or someone who is interested in nursing, PT, OT, speech and/or special education. This position requires someone who is willing to obtain their Respite Care Certification or already has it. The family will pay for this as it is a requirement for this position.

Their happy and lovable son is 4 years old, he has epilepsy and has seizures about once or twice a month. Seizure training will be provided should the nanny want to learn more about this to be more comfortable in the event he has a seizure while you are working.  He is non-verbal, but he has a communication device to use.
