Simon is a smart, active and chatty 12-year-old. He loves football, rapping and computer games. He lives with his parents, younger sister and a new baby brother.

Simon has a diagnosis of ASD, sensory processing difficulties and has expressive, receptive and pragmatic language difficulties. When anxious or upset, he can resort to oppositional behaviour. Simon can clearly express his feelings and you have to be able to recognise when you need to step back and give him space.

We require a confident, proactive and sensitive Buddy who can support Simon to explore new interests and activities and have fun! Someone who can act like a Buddy/ Helper and understand the importance of promoting independence and encouraging self-confidence.

Your role will be to supervise the daily routine, organise different community activities or just relax at home.  As new experience can be daunting for Simon, calm and patient approach is essential.

You will need a good understanding of autism and extensive experience with children with ASD. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with a background in Psychology, SEN or Occupational therapy.

This exciting position will suit an active, energetic and fun support worker who will build a trusting and engaging relationship with Simon and help him to achieve his full potential.
