Offering summer position caring for our 4-year-old son while we work from home. May continue through fall, but hard to predict right now.
J is high-functioning autistic with a speech delay. Looking for someone who thinks critically about how to best communicate with him and understands that when challenging behavior happens, it's not coming from a bad place. There's usually a need or feeling to be addressed.
About our son: J is a caring, energetic, creative 4-year-old. He loves to play with legos, trains, and play-doh and to be outside. He also loves to cook, sing and dance. He's a budding mechanical engineer; he just NEEDS TO KNOW how things work and is always trying to take things apart and build something new. J can be very sensitive but thrives in structure, so we are looking for someone who is patient and kind, but also firm.
