SEN Teaching Assistant

Barnet, London

The pupil will be joining the school in September in Year 4, and will be relocating to the area. He has Autism and he is in class for most of the day but sometimes finds school life frustrating. You will be spending some time in class and at other times, will be working in a resource area with him.
