We are looking for a Personal Assistant/s to support a 15 year old boy who is on the Autistic Spectrum, has ADHD and Epilepsy (well managed by his medication). He is a fun, endearing character, a "giant toddler", who is gentle and likes to play and engage in play with you. He can have challenging behaviour at times and has limited speech. He enjoys going out for walks in the community, going on bike rides or to the park, messy play when outdoors, trips to the cinema. He enjoys watching TV and being on his iPad, playing with his trains and cars when indoors. He has no sense of danger and so safety is important, he is energetic and enjoys his food. He needs some support with personal care and encouragement to build on his independence when it comes to dressing, food preparation and other daily tasks. We are looking for PAs who are enthusiastic, fun and who will engage in "silly" play and be creative.
Experience in working with teenagers on the Autistic Spectrum and with challenging behaviour would be an advantage.
