We are hiring regular special needs sitters to provide frequent fill-in, back-up, and weekend care in our home to our autistic 14 y. o. daughter. We pay very well to hire experienced caregivers who make themselves available at short notice and demonstrate the skill, patience, and kindness to give superior care and attention to our daughter who communicates and functions at the level of a 2-3-year-old. Job duties include constant supervision and interaction, encouraging and modeling speech and expression of needs and emotions, assisting with dressing and toileting, preparing meals, and engaging in play and recreational activities (our daughter loves playing with dolls, coloring, playdough, and walking the dog). You must be able to safely navigate behavioral problems typical of a 2-3-year-old (like hitting and throwing toys).
