To start ASAP – end of Dec
Harrogate, North Yorkshire

1 child aged 7 years

Fridays – 9am – 4pm
(someone who could do some ad hoc babysitting/weekend/school holiday cover going forward would be ideal)

The family are looking for a committed, friendly but firm and reliable personal assistant (‘PA’) to look after their 7-year-old son who is autistic and has very limited speech. He is a friendly child, who likes hugs and lacks play skills so needs 1:1 attention to engage him. He enjoys doing jigsaw puzzles, playing outside on the swing, water play, painting, marble runs, trains, swimming and going to the park. He also enjoys doing familiar schoolwork activities, particularly math and reading.
He does not require assistance with personal care.

The family are looking for a candidate with previous experience of working with autistic children with learning difficulties and sometimes challenging behaviour. Candidates must be patient, calm and be motivated to deliver a high quality of care.

Driver not essential but could be beneficial
