About this client/child:
6-year-old Mark is a very happy, affectionate, and outdoorsy boy with a good sense of humour. He is just as happy playing outside in nature as he is playing with toys from his favorite T.V programs (Night Garden, Numberblocks, Alphablocks). Mark was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2 ½. He attends a mainstream school with an EHCP where he is supported 1:1. Mark has made great progress with his learning and his speech has improved significantly over the last few months. His teacher has said that he is expected to finish Year 1 at the same level as his peers in maths, reading and writing. Mark has also shown improvement in his self-care skills, fine and gross motor skills but they are not quite at the same level as his peers.
Overview of role:
Mark’s family are looking for a proactive and compassionate SEN Nanny who can provide sole charge after-school, and school holiday support. One/both parents may occasionally work from home but will not be involved in Mark’ care during the hours the Nanny is working. The key duties will include prep for his care and activities etc., the school pick-up (walking distance from the family home), assisting with homework, and the dinner, bath and bedtime routine. There will also be some light nanny duties focused on Mark’s laundry and ironing. You’ll be implementing a routine that supports Mark’s needs and further development. The family are offering between £16.00 to £18.00 gross, depending on the level of autism experience.
Who this job would suit:
This role will suit an SEN Nanny who is kind, proactive and can provide fun care for Mark. A genuine passion for working with children and special educational needs is important, as is an affectionate nature and a sense of fun. The family are looking for an SEN Nanny who can demonstrate hands-on experience with young autistic children. Someone who can bring lots of ideas on how to aid Mark’s development would be a bonus.
What’s great about this job:
This is a lovely opportunity to join a warm and friendly family whilst supporting Mark in his key areas of development. You will have the chance to collaborate with Mark’s therapists (OT and SLT) and work alongside them on occasions.
