Autism Support Associate/Assistant (Current Employee) – Newmarket, ON – 10 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.
If you're part-time your hours vary from week-to-week

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.

Kerry's Place is a great place to start your career as they offer opportunities to grow professionally. Some people provided support and opportunities to learn and fostered independence in their team. The most enjoyable part of the job was supporting the individuals and having a great team to work with.
Autism Support Worker (Current Employee) – Orangeville, ON – 10 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!
Helping others, very supportive team and management.
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, ON – 8 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.
