Activity Support

Job Description

Activities would be on weekends in the afternoon except for swimming which would be midday at the YMCA because the slide (his favorite) operates only on weekends from 11:30 to 1:30. Nature hikes and biking or skating are also things he can do. Even though he doesn’t speak, he appreciates being spoken to as it makes him feel like it’s more like a normal relationship. He does FC (facilitated communication) with me and that’s something that comes with his feeling connected and it takes time to arrive at that ability. That is how we find out what his likes and needs are. He says (types) that he wants someone his age (39) or younger because he wants the person to be active. A knowledge of autism would be very helpful. A criminal record check is required. We have not done any public transportation so don’t know if that would be doable. A vehicle would make for more interesting outings because the nature hikes could take place in new different places each time. There will be a minimum of 2 hours and mileage on the job with him would be compensated.
