We are seeking a part time after school SEN nanny for a 4 year old boy with autism in Belsize Park. The boy attends a local nursery attached to a school, full days. The role involves picking the boy up from nursery and taking him home.
Focus will be on learning social skills, turn taking, play skills. imaginative play, and language skills. He works with speech therapist and a behavioural therapist at the moment, working with these two is key to the role. They will both have goals they want to work on with the boy.
He has a great personality and loves things going wrong, like throwing chalk up in the air saying “oh no!” As it falls.
He does well with enthusiastic people who have a good sense of humour. He regulates through touch. A child-led approach is best for him.
He is working on potty training, but needs more time and close attention, so therefore someone who has experience training autistic children is ideal.
The family is bilingual and would love a French speaker to include French in the afternoons.
