Intervener Wanted in Houston, Texas

We are a family in Houston, Texas looking for an intervener for our 4 year old son. We are looking for someone for a position working with him within our home for a year term or longer.

Our son has a rare genetic disorder called Frasers Syndrome. He is completely blind and also has hearing loss, largely conductive. His hearing has improved gradually since birth and we believe he is now hearing in the 35 db range. He is amazingly bright and has worked with a variety of therapists since 6 weeks of age, however he still does not communicate much verbally and is just learning some signs.

He is not medically fragile, although he does have some health complications related to his syndrome. He is completely mobile and walks with a cane. He loves music, swimming, and all types of activities that involve movement. He is extremely spirited and very happy, and has a wonderful sense of humor and laugh.

He currently attends a special needs pre-school program and works with VI, AI, OT, Speech, O&M, and Music therapists. We feel like an intervener is the missing piece in terms of unlocking his ability to communicate. We would be so grateful to have someone to work with him on a more consistent basis and also to help us in terms of how to better work with him.

We are open and flexible in terms of the compensation for the position. We are willing to fund travel to and from Houston, as well as assist with living situations (potentially even within our home if that is preferred).

We look forward to talking with you all regarding the position. If interested, please contact me at lizmaberry@gmail.com.
