About this client/child: Mattie (10), lives in a fully staffed household, with his Mum.

Mattie can experience dysregulation and can present with behaviours that may challenge; He needs help and support to get through these periods. Mattie attends regular speech and language, occupational, and sensory integration therapies. He is home schooled, and he has tutors at home daily.

Overview of role: Mattie’s new SEN Manny, will support him from 7.00am with his morning routine. The family employ another Nanny, and the new SEN Manny will work in partnership with her.
