Help with the supervision of children with identified special needs.
As far as possible, special needs children will be integrated into the main programme within an age group most appropriate to their needs. You will be allocated to help a child 1:1 through discussion with the Special Needs co-ordinator.
During morning registration you will support this child to access a circle time in 'The Space' (quiet area away from the main sessions).
Throughout the rest of the day you will accompany the same child to their main group activities.
Duties will include accompanying them to the toilet and helping with lunch/drinks as appropriate.
Please read the information found in the Lighthouse Special Needs Handbook in order to find out more about looking after Special Needs Children at Lighthouse.
You will also need to provide clear instructions, and timetables, to inform the helpers who have special needs what is expected of them at Lighthouse.
During Lighthouse week you can be a 'link-person' for a helper who has special needs or you can volunteer in another role.
Please read the guidelines for the Co-ordinator of helpers with special needs for more detailed information about the role, and examples of timetables, and role descriptions, for the helpers who have special needs.
