Both Sarah and Robert need full support with all of their care needs and daily living. You will work closely with a second support worker or at times their parents, to provide them with an engaging, calm and happy environment. They both need support and motivation in developing and maintaining their skills. They also need a lot of physical assistance; including with walking and physiotherapy.
