Mom seeking evening help with autistic toddler 3x/week
Posted by Benjamin P. on 9/11/2022
Hi, thanks for reading to see if we're a good match! I'm a full-time working mom with a bright and beautiful 3-year-old son who has autism. We also have a playful golden retriever rescue dog and we're expecting Dear Son#2 in late November. My husband works five nights a week, so I'm seeking consistent help in the evenings for 2-3 hours, three days every week. I need help every Monday evening, but I'm flexible on what the other two days are and what the exact time frame is (ideally would start around 5 or 5:30pm and finish around 7:30pm). I need a babysitter who has experience with kids with disabilities who will know how to engage my son in play while maintaining a sense of structure and routine (he loves being read to, solving puzzle games, going to playgrounds with big slides and climbing walls, and talking about his favorite movie characters, Buzz and Woody!) He'll need your help eating dinner and bathing. Thanks for considering us!
