About B3: B3 is a sweet, gentle and vivacious boy. He loves physical adventure (jumping, climbing, swinging), making sandcastles, puzzles, balloons and exploring nature, he also loves cuddles! He is an enthusiastic eater and sleeps well. He also loves books but responds better when these are brought to life, (eg. acted out, using engaging and different voices for each character etc.) as he cannot always understand or process the words alone. B3 is a very rewarding child to spend time with. He has a lovely sunny temperament and is very curious, with a good capacity for learning and he responds really well to positive encouragement and a confident approach.

B3 has just been diagnosed Autistic and is currently pre-verbal (although very communicative in other ways). The family are currently using physical communication to understand B3’s needs and he is great at making his wishes clear by leading/guiding us to what he wants or bringing what he wants to do/eat/play etc. B3 has recently begun speech and language therapy where they plan on bringing in PECS style communication (picture exchange) to B3’s daily routine.

About the role/family: This is a wonderful part-time position for a Sennie who has a keen interest in developing their skills within speech and language therapies and occupational therapies, to support and care for a charming little boy. The family are looking for a kind, energetic and caring Sennie who can slot into their household with ease and play a vital part in B3’s development over the next year. The family is committed to helping B3 achieve some significant milestones ahead of beginning primary school and want to work with their Sennie to ensure the best outcome for their son, offering lots of opportunity for play and fun alongside teaching and learning.

The family hopes to find a fantastic Sennie with an upbeat, friendly and enthusiastic personality who is excited at the prospect of supporting a young child in the early stages of his developmental journey. The Sennie selected will be able to follow and support therapies and interventions determined by the family (in conjunction with the Sennie) and professionals.
