I am looking for a PA to support my son, with me at first and then independently in the future providing that he is comfortable with this. He loves been outdoors, going to play areas and farms etc but also enjoys visiting indoor play areas too.
He will need support to take part in activities he enjoys and will also need help with all aspects of personal care.
An understanding of autism is an essential requirement of this post. My son will need to communicated with using picture reference and pecs so you should feel comfortable using these.
My personal assistant will be directed by and accountable to me in all aspects of their work. He/she must always ask what i require and not make assumptions about any aspect of assistance i need or how it should be carried out. He/she should not carry put tasks unless we have first discussed it.
My personal assistant will be required to do the following - Support my son in accessing activities he enjoys such as play areas -Assist him with all aspects of personal care if needed. -Communicate using picture reference and pecs. -All other requests that i may reasonably request.
