We are looking for part time Monday-Fridays, 2-8 p.m. (depending on day) to care for our 14-year-old daughter, C. The ideal candidate is an individual who is dynamic, organized, a good communicator, is interested in learning, and who can develop a personal relationship with C (and her 11-year-old sister, C). Experience working with children who have special needs is a plus, but not mandatory.
C is a delightful and socially engaged girl who has cerebral palsy, is non-verbal, but communicates constantly through her communication book, sounds and gestures. She is non-ambulatory and uses a wheelchair for daily activities and transportation. As a result, the individual working in our home will need to be able to transfer C to/from different settings.
We will train you to become a great team member in a nice family!
