We are a family of 3, my husband and I (age 39 & 35) with our 12-year-old daughter along with 3 rescue pets: A yellow lab puppy, Barry; a 2-year-old little terrier mix, Pickles & a sassy toothless cat, Betty White. I work for an insurance company in my home office (the first floor bedroom) and my husband is a behavior specialist working with adults with disabilities. Our fun loving & silly family thrives on routine and structure for our special needs daughter. She has ADHD, Non verbal learning disorder and some attachment issues as she is an adopted child- has been with us for 3 years although she is my biological niece- (she does call us Mom & Dad). Basically, she presents as though she has a mild form of Asperger's with ADHD and acts a few years younger than her age. She is a fun, free spirited, goofy, energetic loving 12-year-old girl that LOVES 1 on 1 time playing outside or at a park, board games, coloring/drawing, music, animals, swimming, loves to read- specifically scary books &comic books, chatterbox :) , pretend play, movies, etc. She started playing flute in school last year and really loves it so she has started taking additional flute lessons outside of school. Since I work from home, I will be there but need the house on the quiet side without interruptions so I can finish on time and devote the rest of the night to my family. We are looking for someone that can ideally come over 3x/wk around 3 and keep her on track with homework and actively play with her until around 5:30. You must be active in play with her, we do not want her sitting around, keep her busy! A big struggle last year was bringing homework home since she would "forget" because she just didn't want to do it, so that's a big pain point for us! Would love someone savvy with homework, keeping her on task and holding her accountable to always put her best effort. Take her to the library, the park, go for a bike ride or a walk, play in the yard, plan adventures, make up a game outside, teach her some of your cool skills. A plus if you can randomly cover date night here and there but not a requirement. Pet care is not necessary but would prefer an animal lover since we have them. Non-smoking is a MUST. Please do not bring your children- we want her to be 1 on 1. We would love someone to have a knowledge of her diagnoses and what goes into that. We are a very open family, questions are welcome and we appreciate and expect open communication so everyone can be united.
