Summer Job Opportunity – part-time flexible hours

Here’s a little sneak peek into some of my summer plans:

We are looking for someone to spend 2 days per week, approximately 3 hours per visit, with James this summer – July and August. His main diagnoses are PDD-NOS, ADD and global developmental delays. James is fairly high functioning, eager to please and has a sweet personality – make sure you ignore any posts I write complaining about him and focus on my Do You Have A Top Ten post!

We prefer someone young, patient and energetic who has prior experience working with special needs children. College students with any related experience (PT, OT or Speech) a plus, though extremely mature high school students will be considered as well. One day per week needs to be Wednesdays from 11:30-2:30, the other day is negotiable/flexible.

We would like this person to work part of the time on academic skills through engaging activities (think math games), and the other part spent outside focusing on physical activity and fitness. One of our goals this summer is for James to learn how to ride a bike, and boy would I love help with this!

There is the potential for extra hours to babysit all of my children some evenings or weekends if that appeals to you in any way. We live on the UWS in the low 100s, with easy access to the subway. We would like to have any possible sitters over for a little introduction (coffee, lunch, dinner, milk and cookies) prior to starting to make sure it is a good fit for both child and sitter. Interview sounds way too formal. And, if you can’t get through the first meeting don’t call us, we’ll call you.

Seriously though, if you are interested in working with James this summer please send me an email with a little info about yourself and your going rate. Or, if you have someone you’d like to recommend please send their name and info to or better yet, forward them this post.
