I’m an awesome young man with a big personality and a zest for life. I left school at the end of last year – but there is still so much I want to learn. I’ve got a great sense of humour and it’s important you do too. I like reptiles, helicopters, music and dancing. I love socialising but can experience anxiety and need support to feel safe. I’m a keen bowler (ten pin bowling) and love cricket, but need help to join in with other people.
On any given day I may need you to be in one or all of the following roles:
Mentor – sharing your life experience and guidance with me as I face the challenges of my day. You’ll be a story teller, sharing examples I can relate to.
Teacher – identifying how I learn things and embedding learning in my day in ways that are motivating and meaningful to me.
Coach – supporting me to set my goals and engaging with the physical and social environments I’m in to set me up for success.
Supporter – giving me the practical support I need every day, with a view to increasing my ability to do things for myself.
