A little bit about us…
Hi there - I'm the mama of a six year old, loving, imaginative, communicative, and red headed autistic son. I'm exploring child care options in the area for the summer and into the next school year. I would love to establish a relationship with a nanny or nanny share in the region that has experience in special education or is looking to gain experience in the area. He loves museums and playgrounds, will soon be starting ABA, and attends multiple therapies a week to help his development.

I am looking to hire part time, 20 - 30 hours a week, 3-4 days. Responsibilities would include transportation to and from therapy sessions, experiences at local parks and playgrounds, libraries and other enriching experiences. He's a loving child, he loves to run and play and has hair as red as the day is long. He loves The Wiggles and Mickey Mouse and is a perpetual ball of beautiful stimming and hand motions. He loves Moana and Disney movies but hates when we sing, we think he has perfect pitch and would love to get him involved in some musical lessons this summer.

Caring for someone's child is a selfless, loving act, thank you to everyone on this platform for all that you do for families.

I want the experience to be one of those success stories, where you come to visit once you graduate college and he's ten or twelve and he remembers, trusts, and is excited to see you in his own little way, lost in his own mind at times, but never forgetting the time you spent together.
