Nate is our wonderful child. He is diagnosed with cerebral palsy ataxia (not spastic, just has some balance issues) and autism. He gets distracted easily and sometimes takes a while to process things. But he is very intelligent, curious, sweet and has an awesome sense of humor. We need someone who is willing to work with Nate as his school aide at Eaton Arrowsmith Academy in Redmond. This is a small private school that helps kids with cognitive development. The kids really have to focus and that's why Nate needs someone to help him. Patience, kindness and a fun-loving attitude is a must for anyone who takes on this job. After school ends at 3 PM, it would be great if his nanny could drive him to my office in Bellevue. But if this is not possible, I can pick him up after school. The school is wonderful. Small classes. And Nate has an awesome teacher. If you are interested in child development, psychology, the brain and how we can develop it, or special needs education... this might be a cool placement. You will be learning about a ground-breaking brain development approach as well as caring for a lovely kid. Kathleen, Nate's mom, and I will welcome the right person and we look forward to working as a team. Thank you.
