Sitter Job in Hudson, Florida

We are in need of an experienced evening/weekend caregiver for our 7 year old Autistic/ADHD son. You must be a non-smoker. H is communication skills are limited. As is prone with Autistic kids, he is a wanderer, meaning you cannot leave him unattended, nor leave the doors unlocked in the house when he is inside. He is extremely intelligent just cannot communicate very well. As all his teachers, behavioral specialist and his TSS say, he is the cutest thing. If he likes you, he will show affection. He is a surprisingly excellent judge of character for his age. The person we are looking for ideally has experience in dealing with Autism/ADHD/Speech Delays. Having a degree in childcare is helpful but not required. We are willing to train you techniques that work well with him. Essentially, having a TON of patience and being actively diligent are the truly important. He is fast as lightning and can be out of sight in no time. You have to have a lot of energy to keep up with him. Having an Autistic child means being flexible and being able to change with him as his needs change frequently. He requires meds every 4 hours and has very specific dietary limitations so we will provide all food. The hours are 9am to 4:45pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I am self employed so I may have the need for evening coverage as well on an as need basis.
