Family seeks part-time/flexible childcare for a 11 year old boy with Autism. He is verbal, mostly independent, curious and playful. He can be stubborn and responds best to confident, enthusiastic adults. Care can be provided at his home or in the community. We are looking for about 5-10 hours per week. Hours can potentially increase if it’s a great fit and the experience has a positive impact on his mood, social skills and behaviour. Pay starts at $25/hour or more depending on experience and qualifications.
