Personal Assistant required to support our son who loves exploring the outdoors and attending social groups and activities. He struggles a lot with his anxiety and because of this his behaviour can be unpredictable which is why he is 2-1 when out in the community.
The right candidate will be patient and have good communication skills. He uses a multimodal approach to communication using his voice, makaton and PECS, knowledge of these communication styles would be preferred.
Our son has a brilliant sense of humour and is always full of love and laughter. He loves people and exploring new places.
We already have a PA in place who has been working with our son for a while. The role will be to work alongside each other providing support for our son to safely take part in activities in the community.
Our son can display challenging behaviour so you must be confident in dealing with this and willing to learn the strategies we use.
You should ideally have experience of working with children or adults with autism and challenging behaviour.
Preferably, you should also be a driver and willing to use your car (petrol allowance will be paid) however we do have a 7 seater vehicle you will be able to use, as long as you are over 25 for insurance purposes.
