We are looking for a "Buddy" for our son, he is 16 and has Down Syndrome. He is very social, polite, funny and independent.
The role is to be his "Buddy" , go with him to some of his sporting activities, movies, go the park and hang out and play Xbox- be a positive role model!
He plays basketball in Crows Nest on a Sunday afternoon, we are teaching him how to catch the bus , walk to the courts, practice with him, then maybe have a burger after and catch bus home. He also goes to Nippers at South Curl Curl on Sunday morning, so it would be taking and hanging out with him at the beach. He is very very good at Xbox. He also is learning Karate, loves movies and swimming. He has just learnt how to ride his bike (after 1 year).
We are looking for someone who is positive, patient, has a good sense of humour, energetic and will be a positive role model both in caring and teaching him in social activity.
We are flexible with the days- just keen on finding the right buddy!
Look forward to hearing from you.
