 Irem is a lovely 9-year-old who lives at home with her parents and sisters.  The family are Kurdish and follow the Kurdish Alevi religion. A knowledge of the Turkish Language would be advantageous.

Irem has difficulties with the three core areas of development associated with a diagnosis of autism, social communication, social interaction, and flexible imaginative play.  Her receptive and expressive language is extremely limited, and she becomes frustrated and annoyed when an adult does not understand her needs.

At school, Irem uses a combination of pecs and individual words. However, she has become a lot more verbal over recent months and is able to communicate her needs using single words.

She has limited awareness of safety. She can sometimes be unpredictable and needs a high level of supervision to keep her safe.

Irem has difficulties using the toilet and needs support with personal care.

Irem enjoys being outside and having a lot of space, she enjoys going to the local parks. She also enjoys trampolining.

As Irem’s PA you would be required to support and assist Irem to engage in her chosen activities.

Irem loves painting and is quite an artist, she also enjoys music.

She is a total chocoholic and just loves all chocolate. She is in her happy place with chocolate and paints.

Irem attends swimming lessons and enjoys her time in the pool.

Irem would like to visit the Tim Lamb Centre or Alan Shearer Centre with her PA.

Irem’s parents would like to employ a PA who has experience of working with children with additional needs and challenging behaviour.
