About my son

My son is a very happy and friendly 10 year old boy.

He loves swimming and enjoys being outdoors in open spaces.  He loves playing on his iPad/laptop and is a big fan of you tube.

You will work with him to support him in activities he wishes to do mainly outside of the home, including swimming.

He requires close, constant supervision, he has no awareness of danger and can run off very quickly.

My son can demonstrate challenging behavior so ideally you will have experience of working with children with challenging behavior and be calm and patient.  He has limited speech and does have a PECS board although use of this is limited.

He loves watching videos on youtube, particularly videos with repetition actions and has started to make his own videos.

A driver with access to a car is needed for this role.
