A super rewarding job opportunity!
We are currently looking for 3 workers to join our team and work with our sweet 6 year old autistic boy, Ezra. Please note that typically in the Son-Rise program you actually don’t pay the people to come and play with your child. You look for volunteers. In the Netherlands that works a bit differently. Here the government has allocated us a small amount of funding, so we can provide modest compensation. If you are loving, non-judgmental & fun give us a call. Ezra attends school every morning and Monday and Friday afternoon, but we know that spending time in the playroom one on one will really help him close the developmental gap and teach him how to interact with peers. Our primary goal in the playroom is social development. We will provide all training. You need no previous experience in working with children. All ages 19 and upwards are welcome. Watch this video below to see if this is something you would like to experience. If the answer is yes, you will find the contact info on the bottom of the page.

What will you be doing?
You come to our home where we have a special playroom for Ezra, free from as many distractions as possible. You will go into the room with an attitude of love, acceptance, and the determination to have a great time. You will follow his lead. If he is withdrawn, you will join him. If he gives you green lights (such as brief looks, glances, touches, or verbally requests it) you will play with him. We have goals we work on, and through the games you play, you will invite him to grow towards those goals. The tools we use to encourage this growth are, Energy, Excitement, and Enthusiasm. After your session is up, you’ll fill out a report. Once a week I will give you feedback, discuss your questions, and give you training. Keeping track of what happens during the sessions helps us understand and evaluate his progress, so we can set goals. In our monthly team meetings, I will provide further training. It is an important opportunity to focus our efforts, and move as a team, thereby optimizing our efforts in the playroom.
