Our family is looking for an aide to work with our therapy team (Psychologist, SLP, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist) in supporting our preschool-aged child who is medically complex. The role of the aide is to support our family to implement the strategies outlined by each of the therapists to help our child achieve her goals outlined in the therapy service plan (training to be provided but we are looking for someone who is experienced in working with children who have developmental delays). Therapists typically provide 1-2 home visits (per discipline) each month with our family and the aide present for these sessions. During this time, the therapist will describe and model how to implement strategies for the goal areas. Our team uses a play-based approach to intervention.
We have up to 15 aide hours a week in our contract. Some of this time is indirect for planning and documentation that you can do at your convenience throughout the week. We are located in the community of EVERGREEN and require morning support as our child leaves for school at noon and therapy team schedules daytime sessions. Applicant MUST have experience working with children with exceptional needs, thank you.
