Full-time 1:1 ASD specialist SEN TA required, Truro
Teaching Personnel are working on behalf of a primary school in Truro who require a 1:1 SEN TA to join them on a full-time basis. This role will require supporting a KS1 pupil who is non-verbal and diagnosed with severe Autism.
We require an outstanding TA with extensive SEN experience who can commit to support on a full-time school basis (25 hours). This role is challenging and will require a teaching assistant who can positively manage challenging behaviour while encouraging academic progress where possible. Team Teach training would be desirable but other manual handling training/experience would be suitable as other members of staff within school are Team Teach trained. Due to the pupil having no verbal communication, we are looking for a teaching assistant who can build and nuture a strong and trusting relationship through the use of various techniques supported by a speech and language therapist. We will need a candidate who can support the pupil throughout their day, including support over breaktimes.
This role is only suitable for teaching assistants with previous experience supporting special educational needs and challenging behaviour on a 1:1 basis. We are looking for the right candidate to start soon and continue on-going providing the intial placement is successful. Please contact us if you are unsure if you have the nessecary experience so we can have a discussion regarding the role.
