This family are looking for an experienced SEN nanny to take care of their 8 year old son, who has special educational needs. Their son has learning difficulties, is autistic and has ADHD, he is currently non-verbal and has no physical mobility needs.
He is a fun loving boy with endless energy.

The role will include all aspects of the child’s care needs, to shadow him and be in place of the parents –
Assisting with toileting, helping him to get dressed, helping him to eat his meals tidier. Keeping him safe is a large part of the role, as he is a flight risk, he can also put himself in risky situations in the home, due to not understanding aspects of danger and cause/effect. Some general tidying and cleaning up after him is needed too.

The child loves swimming, being outdoors, playing on his swing/trampoline and sometimes needs to go in the car for a drive to help him regulate.

The family are looking for candidates who have a minimum 5 years childcare and significant SEN experience working closely with a child with similar needs to their son, as a nanny or carer.
The ideal person will be confident, energetic, kind, self-assured and friendly. The family hope for the nanny to stay with them long term and become part of their family.

The family have a support dog in the house for their other child – no care is required for the dog from the nanny.

Driver required with own car
