Our daughter is 18 years old and has autism. She likes to sing and play Just Dance and do puzzles and play on the iPad. She has a lot of energy. She talks but mostly scripted things from movies, not much real communication. We need someone to keep her company. Every individual with autism is unique and I wouldn't expect you to know how to engage my daughter right away. I would stay and show you what she likes, how to talk to her, what things might trigger a melt down, what is normal for her and how to interpret her behavior. Someone who wants to work in mental health or special needs would be ideal. She gets home from school at 4 so afternoon are best, but weekend evenings so we can go out would be great too.
