Solihull Specialist Inclusion Support Service (SISS) is a well-established, highly valued, local service working closely with Solihull schools and settings to support children and young people with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
We are seeking to recruit an experienced Inclusion Support Practitioner to join the Autism Team which is part of the Specialist Inclusion Support Service and Solihull's 0-25 service. The Autism Team supports children with a diagnosis of Autism.
In this role you will be working alongside a specialist teacher to support schools and settings. You will work closely with the Autism specialist teachers to devise programmes of intervention to support the development of whole school practice in Autism as well as delivering targeted intervention for specific pupils on caseload. You may also be required to support pupils and families who have received a recent diagnosis of Autism. We hold regular meetings to review caseloads and ensure your professional and personal support at all times.
You will have a Level 3 qualification in child care/ child development and possess substantial school based experience of supporting children and young people with Autism. You must also be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the implications of Autism and be familiar with the Autism Education Trust framework as this is integral to the team’s service delivery. Possessing effective communication skills you will be committed to working collaboratively with families, agencies and other professional colleagues.
You will be expected to travel around the borough of Solihull supporting the children on your caseload.
This is a demanding role and you will be joining a group of very dedicated people. You will find that we are an exceptionally supportive service to work for and working with us is both enjoyable and rewarding.
We look forward to receiving your application.
