You are living there 24/7? That's kinda cool. I have worked with developmentally disabled people for 8 years. I love it. Treat them like you would anyone else. Don't talk down to them, they are probably smarter than anyone has ever given them credit for! Be their friend not just their staff, especially since you're living there.
Good Luck and Have fun!

Just be yourself. TRY not to treat them like retarded 2 year old. Just be yourself and get to know them and you will soon discover each ones ability to communicate and level of mentality. I thought you had to be certified in special needs to get a job like that.
