We're looking for a caregiver for a couple of weeks this summer as well as regular after school pickup. ***PLEASE NOTE: Do not respond to this ad if you do not specifically have experience with ADHD/Anxiety Disorder children. Thank you!*** Our son is working hard on handling anxiety and ADHD-related issues. He's a love and fun and likes all the usual 6 year-old stuff, but can't handle the sensory overload of a bustling environment where there's tons of stimulus and opportunities for melting down. We need someone who is understanding of children with sensory and emotional issues, who won't balk if he starts to get worked up about something, and can keep him busy with nearby excursions and lots of reading and playtime. Hours would be 8-5:30/6 on weekdays and move to 2:20-5:30/6 for school days. We're an arts family, so we like to think we're pretty laid back, but it is a constantly active house with a chill, but also still active older cat. :) We require absolutely no cooking or cleaning or anything like that--we just want someone who can give attention to our son, help with homework, let him play, keep calm and proactive when he's worked up, and knows some good strategies for working with anxious/ADHD kids (we have some to share too.) We look forward to hearing from you!
