Job Description

A responsible person is needed to assist with late afternoon and evening care of a special needs child and a sibling. 

Time can be spent in public, doing an activity, or at our house.  I will be close by for some hours, especially in the beginning while we work out the kinks. 

Due to the hours, dinner (I will prepare ahead of time, just reheat) and bedtime routine will be overseen by the aide.  Possible Sat. or Sun. hours; we can discuss it.

Pay rate:  $8.86/hr

Hours per week:  20

Specific hours:  4:00p-8:00p

Duration:  summer, possibly through the year

Candidate Requirements

Experience thinking outside the box is mandatory.  My 11 year old has asperger's and requires supervision while engaging in daily activities.  Skills in redirecting are helpful.  He is strongly attached to my 8 year old, so I prefer to have someone watch both.
