|Imaan & Sarah in the playroom xxx|
We are currently seeking volunteers to play with Imaan in his playroom using the Son-Rise approach. The Son-Rise Programme is a home-based, child-centered play therapy. The approach is based on a simple philosophy (which you can read about here) that is straight forward and easy to understand. For more information about this programme, please click here.
Imaan is making incredible progress since we started the programme in January 2010. We have now decided to do the programme full-time and intend to run the programme from 10am to 6pm Monday-Friday which is around 35 hours per week.
We currently have 3 volunteers doing between 4 to 8 hours each week but require another 4 to 5 dedicated, energetic, creative and loving volunteers to help.
This is a great opportunity to gain precious and rewarding experience working one to one with a special child. We are offering FREE Autism training. No experience is required. We will provide training and feedback.
How much time do you need to give?
A minimum of 4 hours a week for a minimum of 6 months. (Can be split over different days but only 2 hours maximum at one time)
Regular discussions/observations to review progress, set targets and goals and exchange ideas.
We also have bi-weekly team meetings which you would need to attend. These last for about an hour and a half.
Imaan’s purpose built playroom in the family home,
We pay toward travels and provide food at the team meetings.
A professional reference is available from the non-profit organisation ASD Climbers if the 6 months are completed successfully.
What qualifications/experience are required?
No qualifications/experience are required. Training will be provided for FREE.
Volunteers need to have the three E’s - Energy, Enthusiasm & Excitement, but also need huge patience, stamina, focus and observation skills as well as a lack of self consciousness!
Volunteers must be willing to travel to our house
