How much experience do you have working with people who have intellectual or other developmental disabilities?*
If you do not already have our required training required, you will need to commit to about 60 hours of classroom training. Some can be done online or in the evenings and weekends. However, it is very likely that you may need to devote 2-4 business days to the medication class and behavior class. Please respond with the answer that closest matches your thoughts:*
Let's say that you are paid to assist a woman named Linda, who loves music. She asks you to take her to the local pub and sing karaoke. How do you proceed?*
You are assigned to assist a man named Samuel, who doesn't speak. This evening, he is hitting himself on the head, which is not typical for him. What are three things he might be communicating with his behavior?*
You are substituting at a house shared by Leonard, Terrence and Jared. During the shift, the other staff on duty, Melinda, discovers that Jared has gone into Terrence's room and taken several of Terrence's CD's. Melinda tells Jared that as a consequence, he cannot attend the dance he was looking forward to tonight. What is your reaction?
Do you have a valid US driver's license and at least three year's documented driving experience? (Driving experience can be in the US or internationally.)*
