I require a support worker for my 5 year old son who has autism.
He is a friendly, smiley and inquisitive young boy who loves to interact with others.
He is full of energy, likes to be active, is sensitive to noise and can present some challenging behaviour.
His language has developed since starting school and he can say some words.
Support required to take him out e.g. park, beach, swimming, getting changed/dressed at swimming pool.
You would need to keep him safe and supervised at all times as he has no awareness of stranger danger, road safety or dogs.
You must have some experience of autism and be friendly, patient and reliable.
Driver with own car required. Reasonable mileage when taking him out will be reimbursed.
You will report to me, his mother, as your employer.
