About the Children
Boy, 6 - He is a very smart and tuned kid. He is very independent in terms of knows what he wants and has his own ideas, has his own opinions, does well with people who are fun and up for anything. He also does best with people who have boundaries, don't take things too personally if he acts out, and understand kids with ADD. He needs help staying focused and organized, loves to build things and likes to read! He has really gotten into working out and recently made a gym at their home. He can be a tough kid sometimes and needs a caregiver who is good at setting boundaries and building structure and knows tactics to deal with occasional behavioral outbursts. A side effect of the year at home as a sensory kid means he has started chewing on everything and puts things in his mouth so he needs constant reminders especially now with the virus. He can also be rough with the dog, so he needs to be watched when they are playing.

You'll prepare light meals for him, and introduce him to new & fun activities to keep him engaged when he isn't learning! They will be in charge of keeping him active and engaged throughout the morning and afternoon.

It will be so important to keep him active and engaged as he thrives in these moments.
