My name is Rachael and I am a Care Specialist in the Expert Assistance Department at Care.com assisting Matt and his family in their search for a caregiver. Care is mainly for their 8-year-old son who has autism, but also their 7-year old daughter. Hours are 2 pm to 7 pm four days per week, flexible on the days. Duties are school pick up, less than 1 mile away, going to activities as needed, creating and implementing a schedule, homework supervision, one-on-one interaction, and companionship for their son. The ideal candidate has at least 2 to 5 years of experience with children who have been diagnosed with autism and is patient, kind, engaging, flexible, sensitive, nurturing, able to adhere to a schedule, and interested in working with an amazing family and their bright, loving, boy. Preference given to candidates with a background in ABA therapy!
