Job description
Protocol Education are actively looking for Special Educational Needs Teaching Assistants who specialise in working with children with Autism in a mainstream setting within the borough of Trafford, Manchester.

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects the way a person communicates and relates to people around them. Children and adults with autism have difficulties with everyday social interaction. People with autism can often have accompanying learning disabilities but everyone with the condition shares a difficulty in making sense of the world. There is also a condition called Asperger's Syndrome, which is a form of autism used to describe people who are usually at the higher functioning end of the autistic spectrum.

People with autism generally experience three main areas of difficulty; these are known as the triad of impairments (social interaction, social communication and imagination). In addition to this triad, repetitive behaviour patterns and resistance to change in routine are often characteristic. Programmes like TEACCH are often used to work with autistic pupils, as well as ABA therapy.

Main duties will include:
• supporting children on a 1:1 basis
• acting as a support to the teacher when working in a group setting

To be considered for this role or any similar positions you must have:
• Experience/interest in a school/education Special Needs setting and knowledge of ASC/Autism.
• Experience/interest working with Special Educational Needs, in particular Autism/ASC and challenging behaviour

If interested please register your CV online at www.protocol-education.com
