Autism support associate (Former Employee), Orangeville, ON – September 19, 2013
Pros: able to take individuals out in the community in company vehicle.
Cons: pay freeze for the past 4 years...
I really enjoyed working at Kerry's Place because throughout the years I met and supported some very unique individuals. I found it took time to build relationships with the adults with Autism especially those that were non-verbal. I learned how to read the signs of aggitation and anxiety in some individuals. I learned the importance of following the – more... protocols that were put in place to protect these individuals from self-harm, harming others or the environment. The most rewarding part of the job was seeing the adults doing things that "normal" people take for granted such as making a sandwich or doing laundry etc. The hardest part of the job was witnessing self-abusive behaviour or someone in crisis. – less
