Doing jobs around the home

The journey to paid employment for your young person with SEND, is best made in small steps and starts at home. You can help start your young person’s journey by giving them jobs to do around the house. 

Doing small jobs at home is a good starting point for developing their skills and confidence. 

Sharing housework can also help families work better together and reduce family stress.
