Bilingual (English/Spanish) Family Support Provider, Part-Time
Delaware’s leading nonprofit, private agency serving the autism community statewide seeks a parent who is fluent in both English and Spanish and who is the caregiver of a loved one with autism spectrum disorder. As such, they can bring their lived experience to bear in providing one-on-one support and education to both Spanish- and English-speaking families of children with autism. The Family Support Provider (FSP) must have leadership and partnership skills that can teach families how to get the support they need from the complex system of services that can make the day-to-day work of a parent of a child or youth with autism spectrum disorder extremely challenging, especially for those who face language barriers.
FSPs help families navigate educational, therapeutic, and social services systems, coach families on developing advocacy skills and making informed decisions, serve as an emotional support and positive role model to parents and caregivers, and work with families to solve problems related to the care of their child or youth. These tasks require scheduling regular meetings with their assigned families and maintaining documentation of services through an electronic database. Knowledge of Delaware service systems and the range of resources available is essential. The employee must be able to share that knowledge effectively during family meetings and consultation with professionals.
