    Hi there, there is a new school, KidStart Early Intervention Centre in Plumstead, that caters for kids with autism.

    Hi, I came across your website and wondering if you can help me. I’m looking to employ 1 to 2 students, or recent graduates, part-time as private tutors for a 2-year old boy with ASD to help 2 to 3 hours a day for 3 to 4 days a week. Do you know who I can contact in this regard? I can’t seem to get through to anyone at UCT to find out where to post a job ad. I have a more detailed job description but don’t know where to post it to advertise this position to students or recent graduates. Can you help? Thanks.
