I think being a nanny would be challenging as it involves driving kids
around and cooking for them may be hard; I know cooking in your own kitchen
where you label items is fine. but other homes are a challenge not knowing
where items are or reading instructions on food.
If you had a real accomodating parent, they may allow you to label stuff or
leave accessible instructions.
But this arrangement is not bound by ADA or civil rights laws so you would
have to take your chances on the willingness of your employer, the parents,
to be helpful.

I have another career option in mind for anyone who wishes to answer.
What about becoming a nanny? I'd love to do that as well. There is
also nurse, but I don't know if I'd really be good at that or not. If
someone is in childcare or anything, can you give me advice?
