About this client:
Finn (6) is an adorable, happy and outgoing little chap who loves music, dinosaurs, trains, trampolining and bubble play. He is a ball of energy and likes to run around and ride his bike. Finn has a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC), and has complex behaviour, sensory, and emotional needs. Finn is verbal but has a speech delay. There are certain triggers e.g. a change of routine, frustration when not being able to communicate his needs, that can lead to anxiety and behaviour that may challenge. This could present with outbursts, hitting or spitting. You’ll be skilled to identify triggers and de-escalate the situation quickly. Finn is starting a specialist school in September which he is looking forward to.

Finn attends the wonderful Chickenshed theatre group on Wednesdays which he enjoys, and you will accompany him there. Finn is learning to swim; you need to be confident in the water. Monday to Friday 3.00pm to 7.00pm, 20 hours per week, term-time and school holidays. Start/finish times in the school holidays may vary (by mutual agreement) depending on the activities arranged. £18.00 gross per hour.
