PA needed for 16 year old boy
We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic PA to support our lovely son in getting out and about, and accessing activities in the community. He is 16 years old and has Di George Syndrome. He wears a hearing aid and is partially sighted in one eye so needs constant supervision when crossing roads/near traffic. He has moderate learning difficulties, anxiety and a social communication disorder which can make it difficult for him to manage activities and social situations. He needs someone who could accompany him to the library, swimming pool, table tennis club etc but also on trips out and about to shops, cafes and the cinema - anything that any teenager would like to do. He is a kind, generous and sociable person once he gets to know people and has various interests including a love for animals and playing mini golf. We need someone for 3 hours per week, ideally Thursday or Friday afternoon although this is negotiable. Flexibility and adaptability is vital! Experience with young people with complex medical/learning difficulties and anxiety is essential. Driving licence preferable but not essential. If you have a dog then even better!
