About Us:

We are seeking for our client a compassionate, autism-aware, and open-minded individual to be a Life Skills Coach and Case Manager for their 23-year-old trans autistic daughter located in Charlottetown, PEI. This role is instrumental in supporting her journey toward greater independence, confidence, and overall well-being.

Job Summary:

As a Life Skills Coach and Case Manager for their daughter, your primary responsibility is to facilitate her growth and development. This multifaceted role requires a dynamic individual passionate about positively impacting their daughter’s life through continuous learning, planning, and effective collaboration.

As her Life Skills Coach, you will employ a curious and creative approach to tailor educational strategies to her unique learning style and work with her one-on-one.

You will assess her developmental needs in this role and establish SMART goals across key areas. Your responsibilities extend to delivering education through direct teaching, coaching, and collaboration with other professionals.

Documentation and planning are integral components of the position. You will maintain a progress dashboard for her SMART goals, adapt them as she progresses, and contribute to long-term vision planning.

As her Case Manager, you will be the hub of a network of support that includes her family, her roommates, and professionals. Coordination is crucial, as you'll identify and manage resources such as occupational therapy and personal training to assist you in helping her achieve her goals.

You will also be the point person in her life, helping her navigate her daily challenges and opportunities. You will also help her develop systems for coordinating her daily schedule and tools to move her toward greater independence.

Leadership skills are essential; you will lead and coordinate her support team through scheduling and regular check-ins. Furthermore, you will hold meetings with key individuals in her life to ensure a cohesive and coordinated approach to her support.

You will be responsible for overseeing a small budget dedicated to supplies, tools, and equipment that support her development.

About Their Daughter:

Their daughter is a 23-year-old trans-autistic woman living with “supportive roommates” who provide some basic daily living support. She recently left a day program and is now seeking more independence. She has emotional dysregulation challenges and requires daily living support, making steady coaching essential for her growth. She is looking to build social connections, enhance daily living skills, and explore volunteer opportunities.

Qualifications and Requirements:

  • Post-secondary education in human services, coaching, education, or allied healthcare is valuable
  • Understanding of autism, either through lived experience, close relationships, work, or study
  • Understanding of the mental health challenges of living with anxiety and experience or familiarity with anxiety management tools, such as meditation, fitness, and therapy
  • 2SLGBTQIA+ positive and culturally sensitive
  • Mature teaching/coaching skills with the ability to break down tasks into teachable chunks
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills with the ability to adapt communication styles, including the ability to communicate with someone who is neurodivergent
  • Patience and kindness, matched by the courage to challenge in the face of sometimes strong resistance
  • Skills to navigate conflict with candour, care, and timeliness and create “win for all” solutions
  • Clear criminal check/vulnerability check
  • Local travel is required; a valid driver’s licence, clean driving record, and vehicle are desirable
  • Ability to work primarily independently and to lead and coordinate a network of support providers in a team environment but also independently

Schedule and Compensation:

  • Full-time employed position with a salary range of $50,000 to $60,000 (dependent on qualifications and experience) per year based on a 40-hour week
  • Flexible work hours are based on goals, with a focus on measurable outcomes; some goals will require evening or weekend work
