Intervener (Texas)

Hi!  My name is Alexandra Elise Barksdale.  Everyone calls me “Lexi”.

I was born to David and Kathi On June 2, 1995.  I have Charge syndrome.  I have Colobomas on my optic nerve but I have pretty good vision.  I am profoundly deaf so I use sign language and a calendar system.  I have had many surgeries.  You can look at the Texas Chargers website for more information about Charge.  There are lots of pictures of me and all my friends!  www.TexasChargers.org

I have three siblings Victoria, Cole and Dawson.  They are great!  We live in Salado, Texas. 

I am very curious and like to learn new things.  I love the water! Swimming is so much fun.  I am very sweet and love to cuddle!  Some people would say that I am spoiled.  I have been known to throw a pretty good fit every now and then.  If I could communicate better I would not get so frustrated!

I am growing and need a well trained Intervener to help me learn new skills.  I can sign many words but want to improve my communication skills. My parents are very busy and need full time and a part time person to help take care of me.  I am on the DBMD Waiver.  Feel free to call my mom with any questions:  325-456-6591 or email kathi@centex.net Hope to hear from you soon!

Thanks,

Lexi Barksdale (written by my mom)
