I am looking for an engaging, caring and proactive young adult to be my son’s aide for six weeks this summer. I am looking for someone who is positive, mature, energetic, reliable, and patient with great communication skills. My 9 year old son is a bright, kind and fun-loving boy who loves animals, legos and books. He has High Functioning Autism/Aspergers which means he needs extra help engaging with other kids in sustained play. He is also sensitive to high energy environments and can sometimes need to take a break from the action to do his own thing. You would attend camp with him and assist in his social interactions when needed. You would provide that extra support that helps make camp a positive experience for him!

Hours of work are 8:30 to 12:30 or 3pm, Monday through Friday from July 1st through August 9th. The goal is to give autonomy so ideally the end time is variable depending on how he is doing at the particular camp. The camps are located mostly outdoors in Berkeley. You would be responsible for getting yourself to and from camp each day but you will not be responsible for my son’s transportation.

You have experience working with school aged kids, preferably in a camp or school setting.  This position is perfect for a college aged young adult who has been a camp counselor and loves kids. Even better for those who have experience with kids on the spectrum.
