I’m looking for Personal Assistants for my 8 year old son, Leo, who’s very energetic and inquisitive. Leo is very keen to learn about his world and how things work, although this can mean he can be mischievous.
Leo likes having days out at the park where he can burn some energy, as well as going to sensory rooms, and swimming, so PA’s for Leo would need to be active and a confident swimmer. He also likes using public transport, particularly trains to go on adventures for the day.
Leo requires 2:1 support and supervision at all times, as he is not aware of dangers around him. He has Down’s Syndrome with other additional needs, including Autism and ADHD. His behaviour can be challenging if he becomes frustrated. Any PA’s will spend time learning from me, to understand how best to support my son.
A driver with their own vehicle, clean licence and appropriate insurance are required for this post.
