The Opportunity:
We run one of a small number of Son-Rise home-based Autism play therapy programs in Australia. Learn to use animated play to inspire growth and learning while working 1:1 with my sister Elli who is on the Autism Spectrum.


What you get:
Learn the techniques and skills to be happier, more spontaneous and confident while working in any therapeutic situation. No prior experience is required and extensive training and ongoing mentoring is provided. Be part of a team of like-minded individuals and receive a personal reference verifying your experience and the skills you’ve learned through your involvement in our program.


What we require:

  • A commitment of two sessions per week, up to 2.5 hours each, for a minimum of six months
  • Access to reliable transport (preferably living close to our home in Clarence Park or willing to travel)
  • A willingness to push yourself out of your comfort zone and explore your judgements and discomforts in order to be more comfortable and present while working as a play therapist


Volunteering information sessions are held on an ongoing basis.

If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, I'd love to hear from you. Please visit www.autismleap.com for more information and to submit an expression of interest.
