Loved working here when young and a workaholic
ASD Support (Former Employee) –  Thomasburg, ON21 December 2017
Then when I wanted to spend time with my kids, it was clear that to keep management happy you had to stay late and work without pay. Management either doesn't know or care about ESA. People are burnt out and that impacts the people living there.
Pros
Know how good I've got it at my new job in comparison
Cons
i would never want to be treated like the way people with autism are treated

a day in the life
Austism support worker (Current Employee) –  Tweed, ON13 December 2017
This job is very busy, and fulfilling. You get the opportunity to support people with Autism and Dual Diagnosis with their daily lives and help give them opportunities to benefit the good things in life.

You are able to implement ideas that the people you support would enjoy and being to take them on outings, trips, classes and so on.

You work with a staff who are just as dedicated as you are and are able to grow with the team.

there are several sites to work at, and its quite easy to get more hours if you get orientated within other homes.

benefits are available for certain positions, and family is very important for the company.
Pros
amazing people
Cons
difficult behaviours

Interim Chief Financial Officer
Interim Chief Financial Officer (Former Employee) –  Aurora, ON9 December 2017
Kerry's Place provides an important service to clients with Autism. they are the go-to people with the resources for quality care in Southern Ontario.
My contribution there was to support senior management during a period of transition.
As with most government funded organisations, it has had to live within the means provided - often matching a legacy of long term commitments to clients against relatively shorter term funding commitments.
If your passion is the care for people in need, I encourage you to look to Kerry's Place.
Pros
Care oriented, they are service focused, good character people.
Cons
In Aurora, far outside of the GTA

AUTISM CONSULTANT (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON26 October 2017
It’s the kind of company people are proud to call their own. Here you’ll find a collaborative and caring workplace, where an innate drive to excel is matched by a sense of responsibility to the communities where we live and work.

At the same time, we never lose sight of the importance of our own people. This is a place of inclusion, where every day unique cultural and intellectual perspectives empower us to build a better business and a better workplace. And – above all – have fun while we do it.

Overnight Awake Autism Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Tweed, ON18 October 2017
Good place to work, a lot of available hours.
Many scheduling errors causing employees to be stuck on double shifts, very hard to balance a healthy work and home life.

Autism Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 July 2017
You were set up to fail. Management didn't take suggestions seriously until someone got hurt. There was a lack of information going back to the parents. They weren't up front

Enjoyable workplace
Autism Support Associate/Assistant (Current Employee) –  Newmarket, ON10 July 2017
Days/evenings/overnights can be really busy or really slow, but that's the joys of working in residential. It's unpredictable. There have been issues in the past between staff, but management has been able to help resolve those issues. Management is very open and approachable, but they are also trusting of their staff to run the group home in the best way possible. No micro-managing, but more than willing to help if there's an emergency/crisis. On-call supervisors, typically, no the residents of the house so there is no confusion if something happens on the weekends or in the evenings. KPAS offers a lot of in-house training whether it's first aid, CPI, or new developments in Autism treatment.
Pros
Meals, training
Cons
If you're part-time your hours vary from week-to-week

Poor Management
Autism Support Assistant (Current Employee) –  Brampton, ON4 April 2017
Due to poor management, this company does not recognize their employee's hard work. There is no encouragement or guidance by the management to apply for advancement. This company does not treat all their employees equally and therefore my experience as a worker for this organization is not good. The Management needs to change their approach in terms of when dealing with their employees. If they offer job advancement, they need to give equal opportunities to all their employees to apply for advancement.
Pros
to gain experience as an Autism Support Assistant
Cons
poor salary, not enough hours
