MUST be experienced working with children in teens (14) and experienced delivering life skill and educational material (basic life skills - expanding on his reading ability, basic math etc - as its about a yr 1 level now).

The child is 14 and I.D. / ASD / EDS / Coeliac - an absolutely gorgeous natured child.

He can be resistant to learning........he finds everything difficult. So the person needs a gentle nature, patient and a lot of fun........ ability to push but also negotiate, work around resistance and make everything a game.

He is verbal but does have some issues being understood. He is very noise sensitive and generally an emotionally sensitive child.

I require a person who has perfect english due to his language abilities and issues understanding language. Slight accent ok but must have perfect english.***

Work will be delivering therapy, assisting with hygiene prompting (in nappies) and some physical assistance (teeth/showers), cooking his lunch etc.

Activities with him can include lots of cooking and playing board games - if you know how to play "Magic" the card game he will love you all the more!

You may also be required to accompany him to therapists, swimming and outings.

He also has 4 other brothers in the house (10 up to 20 yrs) and all are also ASD etc etc - they have their own support workers but you may also be required to assist with their needs as well and attending outings with them all when required.
