Looking for an after school companion/mentor for my 13-year-old child who has challenges related to Asperger's Syndrome, ADHD and OCD. He is very high functioning, socially outgoing, and independent but could use some motivation to do some structured extracurricular activities inside/outside of the home after school for 1 or 2 days of the week. The caregiver will provide transport to/from activities, and participate in activity planning, which could include a variety of outings or paid programs. Consider teaching him your own skills/talents like singing or swimming or playing guitar or shooting hoops - anything active!
