Josh, 12, in a very active young chap, whose favourite activities include swimming, trampolining, cycling, soft play and playgrounds, playing on his computer and iPad, watching TV and train rides! Josh has severe autism, learning disability, presents with challenging behaviour and has multiple and severe food allergies, for which he carries an epipen.
The job will involve school drop off and pick-ups (the schools is a 30 minute drive away from Josh’s house) and accompanying Josh to before and after school activities. In this position you will be involved in aspects of behavioural management, assist with personal care as well as medication administration.
This role will suit a patient, kind and energetic support worker who has previous experience with autism and challenging behaviour. You must be a good communicator; although Josh is verbal he does lack some functional language such as communicating when he is feeling unwell / in pain. You will be organised and plan activities in advance, liaising with Mum however it is important that you bring your own ideas and creativity. A driver and a swimmer are essential.
Fantastic opportunity to work with a wonderful young man and continue his development. Training in all areas of Josh’s needs and care will be provided.
