Positively Impact the Life of a Young Adult

Direct Support Staff Person – Part-Time

Are you looking for work that makes a direct positive impact in a person’s life? We are the parents of a 21-year-old developmentally disabled young man, and we are looking for staff to provide community-based services to our son, the client. He is autistic with intellectual, speech, and language impairments, but he is very social, independently mobile, and demonstrates compliant behavior. Due to intellectual disability, he does require regular monitoring, guidance, and assistance with communication.

Available shifts can be 3-6 hours long, whatever works for both the staff person and the client. Duties include Job Coaching at workplaces to assist the client in staying on task, learning to perform tasks, and communicating with supervisors and co-workers.  Other direct support staff duties include: taking the client to and from therapy appointments and community-based activities; and working with him on functional skills and community activities such as, assistance with speech practice, exercise, and grocery shopping. The work is rewarding and an important part of making our son’s life fulfilling.

We live in Bedford, NH, and our home is a non-smoking home. The qualified candidate will need to pass a criminal background check, a BEAS check, have a valid motor vehicle license and reliable car, and provide references.

Pay is $16.00 per hour, plus mileage reimbursement.
