He is Autistic, very sweet, smart and affectionate. He does have a severe speech delay, so patience and understanding are extremely important. The job would include picking him up from school and taking him to different therapy appointments throughout the week. We would also like additional weekend help that can be set up in advance on an as needed basis. It would be approximately 20-25 hours a week. Must have your own safe and reliable transportation, and previous experience with special needs children is a definite plus. We look forward to hearing from you!
