JOB DESCRIPTION 

Part-time Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am an 8 year old girl living in the Porth area. I am extremely adventurous and love to be outside. Playing in the park and feeding the ducks are some of my favourite things to do. I enjoy walking in the woods and visiting Barry Sidings. You will need to keep a close eye on me though as I am very fast and can sneak off without you noticing. I also have no understanding of danger so you will need to consider this at all times. I love all kinds of music but my favourite genre is rock, although I have not found a favourite singer/band yet. I enjoy watching movies, Paw Patrol and Sing are two of my favourites.

I have Hyper Mobility so I do have a buggy and a wheel chair, however on short walks I do not require them. These are an option depending on where you take me. I am also nonverbal but know Makaton. However if you do not understand Makaton, I will make it known if I require anything.
