You should be an effective communicator with a person-centered approach to your care delivery. You will understand the importance of providing care and support with dignity and respect. You should be strong physically and emotionally to deal with Autistic clients.

Your role as a Support Worker will be to provide clients with day to day support including personal care as well motivating them and encouraging independence.
