As a Children’s Senior Support Worker, you could support someone like *Tommy:
My name is *Tommy and I live in residential home next door to my school with 5 other children. I am 9 years old, I have autism and my understanding is very limited. I can struggle to verbally communicate and certain noises can upset me. I can cry and hit out, sometimes I like to be on my own which isn’t always good for me. I have a Support Worker called Janice, she comes to see me in the morning, she tells me funny stories, helps me get ready for the day and take my medicine. She will also help me to dress smart and take me to to school, so I can learn new things. My teachers help me make progress each day.
Phillip one of my other Support Workers, then comes to see me later and helps me do my homework and cooks me a lovely tea, we sit and eat ours together. We made pizzas yesterday! We do different things every night, such as a nice walk or my social club, or I even just chill out in the sensory room. He reads me a bedtime story and makes sure I’m cosy and warm in bed before turning off my light. Without the people that help me I wouldn’t have the independence or the fun life that I do.
