Afterschool PA for active and jolly 9 year old boy with ADHD and additional needs 2 – 3 afternoons a week.

We are looking for a kind, committed and caring PA for our 9 year old son who is adopted and has global developmental delay and DLD (Developmental Language Disorder). He has ADHD and is currently awaiting ASC assessments, but he connects really with all people, is now talking and enjoys company. He is particularly keen on jigsaw puzzles, playing with his animals (soft toys) and with our Nintendo games. He's also learning to relax and likes to watch rollercoaster POVs on YouTube - we are quite happy for our son to chill in front of the telly with his PA too! Our son has a good level of understanding, so makaton signing not essential but he still needs constant supervision to help him feel safe and secure, so the ability to play for 2 hours solidly is required! Mum and Dad work from home so one of us is always here, but we need to reclaim our working days and are looking for a committed person to start in January (with some days in December useful for introductions). Play will happen at home at first till our son is secure with his new PA, then trips to the playground, walks and bike riding and scooting all encouraged. He's learning to feel secure, to be happy - and he's lovely.

We are seeking Mondays, Tuesdays and Weds in the first instance 3.30pm - 5.30pm at our home in Prestonville, if you can cover at least 2 of these do get in touch. We would like someone to be able to do the occasional evening and weekend subject to your availability.

We receive direct payments so the ability to be paid through Possability is desirable but not essential.

Thank you for reading.
