Personal Support Worker - State of Oregon/Balter Family

Our family is looking for a personal support worker to help with our son who has autism. He is very high functioning, but needs a lot of attention. Our son is currently out of school and home all day and it is hard to provide all the attention he needs and still get things done. It would be helpful to have a 3rd parent around. We could also use some help evenings and weekends if possible. Our son is very high functioning, social, and fun, but has extreme anxiety and low self esteem, and gets very easily overwhelmed. Because he feels so unsettled, he has a hard time occupying himself, and requires a lot of personal attention. Our son is very physical and likes to be in motion. His main interests are fishing, pro scootering, animals, and music. Crossover interests could be good. We have a hunch that a guy might be a better fit, but of course it depends on the individual person. The provider would help keep our son on track with chores, take him to activities like the skate park, do any other activities they would enjoy together, and often just be a third parent around when he is playing with his friends so mom and dad are free to work on projects, handle family business, go shopping, maybe even get to take a walk together, etc. The pay is through Multnomah Co. I/DD and is $14.25/hr. There may be room for some flexibility on that depending.
