Never a dull moment. If you're looking for a job that never stays the same this is it. You can have a flexible schedule however there is shift work. The people you support are all unique and amazing.

Challenging
Autism Support Assistant (Current Employee) –  Thomasburg, ON29 January 2017
This job requires a lot of physical work including restraints. You do get to take the individuals on community outings; however with a lot of individuals you need to be aware of surroundings and on guard all of the time.

Great place to work
Autism Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Orangeville, ON10 December 2015
Great place to work, you gain a lot of experience. Definitely a great place to work especially if you are in social services/ psw field. Make sure to ask a lot of question when getting trained, sometimes people just assume you know what you're doing. Depending on the house you work in staff is incredibly supportive, and love to help. Really good place to work if you are patient, kind, caring and extremely outgoing!
Pros
Helping others, very supportive team and management.
Cons
Hard to get shifts covered when needed, pay could be better considering all the work you do.

A warm, welcoming work environment for disabled children to learn.
Swimming Instructor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON8 May 2015
Although it was a short stay, the working environment of the facilities were always in perfect condition and the staff was never short of hands. Each child had plenty of time with the tutors under a clear view of their parents/guardians. The best part of the job was being able to work with the children, and knowing that each of us was helping them learn to socialize. The hardest part, was admittedly getting the children to stay in the showers long enough to wash away the chlorine. From this workplace, I learned how to manage groups of people, and gained confidence in working with others.
Pros
Working with children.
Cons
Late hours.
