Job Description

Walden School (WS) is a nationally-recognized residential therapeutic and education program for deaf children and youth ages 8 to 22.
Walden residential school students are challenged by severe social and emotional difficulties, and have significant treatment needs that have not been successfully addressed in other academic and residential settings. Working with a staff that is proficient in American Sign Language (over 75% of whom are Deaf), Walden students receive highly individualized, trauma-informed care and therapy in a structured, supportive, home-like setting. Students attend classes during the day in contained classes with curriculum modified to each individual need, and have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities on campus.

Supervise children in daily routines and assist with the activities of daily living skills.
Support and assist children using methods which reflect the treatment philosophy of Walden School.
Develop and maintain meaningful and supportive relationships with the children while maintaining appropriate adult/child boundaries.
Provide students with a level of supervision consistent with the treatment plan and Walden School safety policies.
May be delegated and trained to conduct medication administration or certain medical procedure responsibilities for students.
