JOB DESCRIPTION

WEEKEND Personal Assistant

A LITTLE ABOUT MYSELF

I am a 6 year old, boy living with my family and dog in the area of Aberdare. I am a funny happy go lucky boy with a cheeky sense of humour. I am quite a busy boy and love to get involved with things going on around me so you have to be able to keep me safe as I have no danger awareness and I will require you to hold my hand.

I have a diagnosis of ASD, ADHD and I can feel anxious at times. I am a gentle and chilled and I love building positive relationships. I am verbal and have very good functional language. I can use the toilet independently and will ask to go when out and about. I also attend ASD rainbows, which I really enjoy. Sometimes there can be too much going on and I can feel overwhelmed. The best way to support me through this is either distracting me or removing me from the environment.

I love using google maps and fining places like my Nanny’s caravan. I would love to find places on the map and then visit them!
