I am looking for two Personal Assistants to provide 2:1 support to my 9-year-old son to allow him to get out and about in his community and fully participate in family activities and outings
He is a happy, confident, adventurous, lively boy who loves being outside and active in all weathers. There are a wide range of things that he enjoys, he likes wide open spaces where he has plenty of room to run and explore. He also likes to visit Newcastle City Centre as there are a number of shops, he likes to call into to ride the lifts there.
This role calls for two people who can work well as part of a team, are calm, confident, cheerful and enjoy being outside in most weathers and are able to keep up with my son – he can move very quickly when he wants to!
Previous experience of supporting a young person who has autism with their behaviour is essential, as are excellent communication skills as my son has a style of communication unique to him and you will need the patience to learn it so you can understand him.
Someone who can drive and is willing to use their car for work is also an essential requirement for the role. Mileage will be reimbursed.
This post is subject to satisfactory references and enhanced DBS checks.
