I am seeking support for my homeschooled 9-year-old PDA autistic son. I am looking for someone who can spend time with him for 2-3 hours per week (likely on a Wednesday or Thursday). My son also has diagnoses of ADHD, SPD, anxiety and DCD. I am looking for someone who is trauma-informed, and knowledgeable or willing to learn about PDA as a nervous system disability. Ideally, you are energetic but have the ability to remain calm and empathetic if a child becomes escalated. My son considers himself a “goth kid” and is very interested in monsters, anime, Godzilla, Star Wars, board games and video games. If you share any of these interests that would be a bonus.
Candidates who have first aid training and a driver’s license (plus a safe car) are preferred.
