Respite Care

I am *looking* for a nurturing, sensitive and energetic person to provide respite care for my 6 year old boy. Child enjoys playing with his ipad/technology, watching videos, and some outside time, in Terrace Bay.

He is generally happy and playful. He can experience some uncertainty with new people and experiences so patience and understanding is required. He is non verbal and diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

The family is looking for someone who can build a relationship and provide regular outings, gradually building up to 5-10 hours per week, once you are comfortable with each other.

The ideal person will support socialization, communication, and play skills through outings and opportunities within the community. (car rides, walks, visits to parks)

Experience with Autism is an asset. Driver’s License and vehicle is required. Pay is negotiable and hours are flexible. Please call Alexis at 705 280 6237
