Buddy required to look after a 15-year-old boy who has learning difficulties and a diagnosis of ASD (autistic spectrum disorder). He is a lovely boy, very positive and cheery, but acts much younger than his years. He likes to play imaginative games with his little figures and playing outside. He can be a little stubborn, so buddy needs to be calm and patient with him. Buddy will be at home when the boy gets back from school between 3.20 and 3.40 pm. There needs to be a routine of getting him a snack and then going out to the gym, bike riding, playing basketball and other fun and age-appropriate games.
Experience with children with additional needs would be advantageous. Family have a small, good-natured dog.
