As such, NAC is looking for a creative problem solver to join a fun, hardworking team as an Education Specialist for High School and Post-Secondary clients who will support NAC families in their participation in wide-ranging school/schooling related matters and in community-support opportunities.
Additionally, the Education Specialist will assist in the development and delivery of opportunities related to the promotion of caregiver and student self-advocacy and empowerment.
Description of Responsibilities:
*Please note, NAC education staff is currently operating on a hybrid schedule—part remote, part in-person. Most in-person activity, in recent months, has been limited to school visits, home visits, and group outings. In-office presence has largely been “as needed” or if preferred to working remotely/from home. We anticipate, in the coming months, that NAC staff will begin to increase its in-person work particularly around school visits, IEP meetings, and classroom observations, and that more in-office time will be required but that has yet to be determined.
Required Education and Experience:
