We are seeking a person, with a behavioural background and experience with autism, to work as an SEN nanny for a family in Dubai. The boy is 4 years old and is showing sign of autism.

The family is seeking someone who has experience with a naturalistic approach to ABA, a teacher, a teaching assistant or an experienced tutor, to work as a nanny with their son in Dubai and worldwide travel.
He has a team in place including; OT, speech and language, and behavioural support. It is key that the candidate is willing to work with allof the team to result in the best outcomes.
The boy is very active and loves to climb, he does not show awareness of danger, so you must be alert, especially when out in public as he will run into the street.
The role will involve getting the boy ready for school (8am start – leaving house at 7.15am) and then dropping him off. The school day is your time off and a bit of time to plan what you are doing for the day before the afternoon sessions of play-based therapy, bath, dinner, getting ready for bed.
