PCA for 13 year old (Springfield)

I am looking for a Personal Care Assistant (or two) for my disabled 13 year old son. Hours will be from after school (3:30 pm - 5:00 pm) Monday through Friday. Availability for school breaks (7:30 am - 5 pm), weekends or weekend overnights (your home) would be a bonus or this could possibly be a second person.

My son requires 1:1 supervision at all times. We are specifically looking for someone who has experience working with behaviorally and mentally challenged children/teens. Transportation is necessary. Cannot have other children while caring for my son. Looking for an interactive and active caregiver who would do things with him and help reinforce the same behavior plans, rules and standards that we have for him. He enjoys swimming (has membership for the pool), crafts, and playing outdoors. The right candidate will be able to keep up with him physically, be stern but fair, and really enjoy working with kiddos that need special attention and guidance.

Pay is through ARIS and you would need to pass a criminal background check. Looking for a committed individual who would like to stay in the position long-term. My son becomes very attached and change is hard for him.

If interested in the position, please contact me to discuss in more detail.
