What are other care providers in the area charging per hour for special needs children?
What are other care providers in the area charging per hour for special needs children? I used the babysitting calculator but there is no option for that. I am allowed to say I have 6 years of experience if two of them were volunteer? I also have a BA and an AA in child development.
$20-30 an hour
They are charging between $20.00 and $30.00 per/ hour in my general area.
Tends to run about the same as everyone else $11-$25 an hour
minimum of $25/hr
20 TO 30 AN HOUR
I would say $20.00 /hr
I would say maybe 20-25 is good to middle! Hope this helps!!!
I worked with a young boy with Autism and charged $17/hr. Personally, I don't think I would go below that. Then, of course, it would also depend on the level of need for the child or individual. If their levels of need are up there, I would charge more. I hope this helps.
$25 per hour
Some charge $27-$30/hour
18 to 20 per hour
Hello Sarah, Happy New Year- I am seeing your job posting now:) I presume the difference in previous posting is regarding your granddaughter? No worries regarding her care! I feel confident that I am perfect for what you are requiring, and I would like to meet with you to discuss this position further. I do not live local to the Pacific Palisades area, I am in the Santa Clarita area. If it is at all possible to give me a cross street/general area of where you are located, that would be beneficial to me. I have been a personal/private chef for a few different families and I can provide references if needed. Thank-you! Linda
Hi Ms. Linda, I saw your conversation with Sarah posted in an information board about the question: "What are other care providers in the area charging per hour for special needs children?" I really want you to get the job. If you haven't heard from Ms. Sarah, You should apply for this job on Sarah's page instead of this information board. Thank you
I wound think about 25 per hour?
I would say typically $20 is the starting rate for a care giver with experience, CPR & first aid certifications. Due to your experience and BA I'd say you can start your rate anywhere from $25 to $35 per hour for one child.
In Boston area, depending on the disability you can ask for 25/hr.
It depends on the other services you would be willing to offer, but with your education and area of expertise, charging $18-$25 seems to be the average.
&15. Is usually rate around Allegany County in Md
Personally, I don't think a sitter should charge more to babysit just because the child is special needs. But that's just my opinion.
I have 6 years of experience working with special need ,and you have to have a lot of patience a lot of love because as the name say the special gifts of God for the world
I haven't seen any prices that I can relay back to you, however, I'd recommend stating the price you believe you are worth and explain why. Of course there might be some haggling involved, but as long as you're firm and know that you can provide, I don't think you'd have an issue getting near what you might want.
I have cared for many special needs children while in Dallas. I found the pay was only slightly more, but once you worked for and with them, and they saw your level of care and concern the "tips" were CONSIDERABLY more.
It is not taking my ss#
Minimum I would say $15/hour
You can say you have 6 years even if they were volunteer unless it specifies that the experience is paid. As for average rate for special needs children, I think you should consider what your normal rate for non-special needs children is and then add an amount equivalent to (your years of experience/2) + number of extra qualifications you have (Ie. cpr trained, BA, AA) and that will give you your rate.
I charge a living wage to all of my clients. I add a few more dollars for special needs.
The rate for special needs is not really much different from the normal rate unless you have to do things like give them a breathing treatment or do daily meds etc. If nothing like that is required and it's one child you can expect the same fee for non special needs. How much to charge depends on the area. For example in California you can get up to $16-$17 / hr for 1 to 2 special needs kids but in places like Florida the same job would be $13/ hr.
Depending of the nanny how much they want to charges per hour.
15 dollars per hour...
I have seen hourly rates starting at $25/hour however it truly depends on the severity of any disability. Some special needs tikes need bathroom assistance and being lifted into a wheelchair. I suggest you speak with her doctor or nurse as they see more special need tikes and may have a suggestion or two. Best wishes, Nancy
Probably 10 to 15 dollars per hour. I am a special education paraprofessional for grades k-5th grade. This is my 12 year as a teacher.
If I sent a friend my phone number through the messaging system of care.com, does it go through or will they block out my number?
why is it that family's wont trust male caregivers
Hello, My name is Hallie! I am a student at North Central University pursuing my degree in Social Work, and I am currently living with family in Woodbury for the summer. I am looking for a family to nanny for this summer, full time! I am also looking to become your new go-to date night babysitter! Last summer I was a nanny for an infant. She was 10 weeks old when I started with her and is now one year old. The baby was three months old when I started with her and is now one year old! She started daycare when I went back to school in August. However, I am still close with the family and babysit her weekly. I also babysit their newest addition who was born March 10th! Currently, I am a nanny for a family in Woodbury after school on Tuesday and Thursday's. The children are ages 7, 9, and 12! I own my own reliable vehicle and have a perfect driving record. I love doing things such as grocery shopping, supervising swimming, exploring local activities, tutoring, meal preparation, light housework, and playing outdoors. I am very responsible, organized, reliable, outgoing, and hardworking! I would love to be a part of your family for the summer with the potential of continuing to be around as a babysitter during the school year! I would love to talk with you more about future opportunities. Please reach out if you feel we may be a match! Thank you for your time, Hallie
My name is Beata Wakulinska. Im interested in the nanny position you are offering. I have been a nanny for over 18 years and I have great references. I have reliable transportation, great driving record and CPR Certification. I look forward to speak with you. Thank you, Beata Wakulinska
Review not showing up
About the experience, yes volunteer work absolutely counts as experience.
Or 15$ a hour
There are other babysitting sites just use google to find them and you can put in the message about you that you have those degrees.
In my area the fees for special needs children don't typically go up. The fee range seems to be pretty variable though, from $11 - $25 per hour. There tends to be a difference in average based on the specific area. Volunteer experience is still experience and I believe that should count. If it makes you feel more comfortable you can make note of it for future employers (that part of your experience was from volubnteering). Having educational training in child-specific areas like education and child growth and development will add a great deal of value to your application.
Need jobs in Tulsa Oklahoma, not in Florida
I would not charge more for a special needs child. They are just children. All children (especially young ones) need special care, and a sitter/ nanny who meets their needs.
Yet to come across anyone this might pertain to in my applications or interviews but in my opinion this might vary from child to child. Every child is different and when working with special needs there is a wide spectrum.
I need to change my address 7330 nova scotia drive port richey
Volunteer work is still considered experience, just not paid experience. It depends on the level of attention the child will need due to their type of disability I would think. Good luck!
Around $20 hour
I believe since you have degrees and quite a few years of experience you can charge at least $25 an hour.
I am a Excellent nanny that has been working for 17 years I love children love to play with them take them out for walks, love to interact with them.
Volunteering is a great way to get experience, so you should definitely include it! I usually charge about $12-$15, depdending on the job and whether the family is asking for extra things like cleaning. Most families are able to afford that range.
18-20 dollars per hour for one child
All of your experience is relevant, volunteer and paid included. No lower than $22/hr for children with special needs.
I have over 15 years of experience in childcare and working with children/adults that have special needs. The average cost per hour would be $15-25. Those lucky to receive some type of assistance can help combat the cost but it is still expensive to have a caregiver.
$18+ is what I would recommend fro taking care of children with special needs and adults.
$20 an hour. Yes, volunteer work counts.
Yes, paid or unpaid years of experience is still your experience. Typically I would say $5 more per hour than your usual rate. Each case can be very different so you can also say to the family what your range is, and give them an actual figure after a meet and greet. I will usually observe how the child behaves or responds to the parents, since some children may show better behavior towards unfamiliar persons until they later "warm up". Some children require more care and assistance than others depending on their special needs. Are they biters, spitters or physically aggressive? There are also times where I have not charged extra because the child was well behaved or high-functioning. There can be many variables to consider. I hope this helps!
Hola Maria lamento lo que estas pasando, mi nombre es Lucrecia soy de Peru, tengo 18 anos de experiencia con ninos recien nacidos hasta las 6 anos aproximadamente, tengo excelentes referencias, me interesa la propuesta de trabajo por largo tiempo. Si deseas podemos conversar, gracias por tu atencion
I'm not sure how much. But considering I got $18 an hour for two typical children, I would probably charge $17 an hour for special needs. I made $15 an hour in CA without a Bachelors degree and my friends who were behavioral aids with a degree made $17 to $20 an hour. Especially since you have a Bachelors degree. You deserve a higher wage!
Did you know that Care.com never responds to your emails?
It depends on the needs of the child, and the experience of the sitter. It ranges from 13 to 25 per hour in my area. As for volunteering for 6 years,you can count that as experience. Provided you have a reference for it.
I don't know where you live, but in this area (Mid Michigan) families typically pay $10-$15 per hour. I have only worked with one child who had special needs-a 3 year old little girl with Type One (serious) Diabetes. A young child with juvenile diabetes requires diligent care. I constantly monitored this child's blood sugar throughout the day, calculated the amount of insulin she required, planned and calculated the amount of carbs she was given, and gave her injections each time she ate. She was very fragile, and I'm not exaggerating when I say her life was at risk on a daily basis. However, her parents paid me the same amount as other families were paying. I never thought that was quite right--especially considering there were 2 younger children to care for as well. In hindsight, I'd say that I deserved a higher wage and should have insisted on it or moved on. However, I do not regret being their nanny--I loved them then and still do. As for your next question, I'd just lay it all out as you stated. "I have worked with children dealing with special needs for six years. Two of those years were as a volunteer and the remaining four as a professional." And by all means, YES, tell them about your qualifications. You worked hard to earn your degrees and this too should justify your request for a higher wage. I would think a 10% to 25% above-average charge would be appropriate, depending upon the neediness of the child, and the amount of responsibility you would be assuming. If a child is injured or dies on our shift you would not only would lose our job and any future jobs in this line of work, but would also face legal issues which could result in prosecution. You MUST be properly trained before taking such a risk. I hope this has been helpful to you.
Hi! Great question! Yes, your experience is all valid! Just be honest when they ask you about what were paid jobs etc. It depends on the neighborhood, but that being said, if the going rate is $18 for a non-special needs nanny then $20 or higher would be a range. Only you can put a value on what you think your value is.
Please contact me at your earliest convenience so that we can set up a time to meet. Thank you, Debbie
Minimum pay for babysitting in Florida for 1 years old twins
$10-12 a hour sometimes its a flat rate
Hi, I have 18 years of experience with newborns up to 6 years, my last job was in Greenbrae a month ago that ended, I m very tidy, punctual, honest and I dedicate 100% to the care and protection of the child. I have excellent references. If you would like to know about me please contact me. Thank you for you attention.
I am a mother of four children who are already grownups with the youngest being 23 years old and attending Montgomery college Germantown, Maryland. My first son has three children. The last two are twins (a boy and girl). I have been taking care of these children right from birth to date. I have also been taking care of my cousin's twin children who are all boys now up to 4 years old. He also has four children two girls. Since they moved, I have been jobless of which I am too idle at home. Since I am used with children, I need company at home or somebody to be talking to when my husband goes to work, and my son goes to school. If I am lucky to have this job offer that will help reduce the boredom of loneliness at home and most important of all, help me to augment my husband's income because right now he is the only bread winner. I am certified in First Aid and CPR. Generally, I love children. When I see them chatting and jumping around without getting tired, I feel satisfied and happy. They make me feel alive and active as well
I would charge between 15-20 at least because of your experience
Hi, my name is Deanna! I have been a sitter for about 12 years now. I have experience with children ages 6 months to 13 years old. When I was younger, I watched 4 children on a daily basis when they came home from school until 8:00 p.m. I helped them with homework, prepared dinner, gave bath time and tucked them into bed. I began working as an assistant teacher for a daycare in Orlando and gained a passion for teaching and caring for young children. I am now 23 years old and pursing a Bachelor s degree at UCF in Education. I am CPR & First Aid Certified and can speak Spanish. I continue to sit on weekends whenever I am needed. I love teaching and caring for children (and pets), and I know I could easily serve as a benefit to your family!
I have a degree in Art with a minor in Education. I am also a former EMT. I have current driving records, CPR certification, and background check available to see. I also have 20+ years of training in child care. With this I charge $15-$20 an hour. Nikki Bell
15-20 an hour is all alot of people can afford but every family is different.
$25.00 to $30.00 an hour
Ive seen most people asking $15-$25 an hour on average for special needs care providing in my area. I hope this helps!
Not sue the normal child care is $20-$25 a day
I currently work with a child with special needs and am being paid $22 hr. I have a BA and 8 years experience working with children.
I truthfully would charge the same amount as i would if the child did not have special needs. The only way i were to be paid extra is if the parents initial offer is more than what i usually receive. Usually those who post about they're need for a care sitter will say how much they're going to pay. Other than that, i wouldn't want to make them feel like it is a burden having to care a little extra for their child and therefore i should receive more compensation. I do not believe that or do i believe it is right. I hope that answers your questions or helps at all!
Do what your heart tells you I mean I would honestly do it for free
Most care providers are paying 8.00 an hour.!
Hi, my name is Lucrecia I recently moved to Vallejo, my information says San Francisco because I have always worked in the Marin area and also I have a room in San Francisco. I care newborns up to 6 years, I m very tidy, punctual, honest, and I dedicate 100% to the care and protection of the child I have never had an accident in these 18 years with the children. If you would like to know more about me, please contact me. Thank you.
For this I would say for myself I would take $22/hr or more.
Generally the rate starts between $20.00 an hour and goes up from their depending on your availability,Qualificatiions and experience. The price would also be depending on if you were to do light housekeeping,prepare meals etc.
At least $20
I would charge a minimum of 20 an hour considering your experience and child development degrees added on to the situation. It would also depend on the severity of the exceptionality and your duties that the family would need you to do while babysitting.
I believe that the minimum is $20/hour.
With your educational background, I would definitely charge at least $20
Yes I would count your volunteer time as experience. And your rate for special needs children depends on the families needs.
I have seen 20.00 an hour for special needs caregivers with experience,
I personally think that a proper care provider will bend to the needs of the family. A typical hourly charge for a child is about $10, so maybe $12-15.
I would like to clean for your family. I am very personable, warm, friendly. Cleaning relaxes me. I know a well kept house helps a family. Growing up my mom kept an immaculate house. She actually opened a small business helping others organize their homes and helps with organization strategies. I've worked as a nanny and a personal assistant. I am mild manned and easy to get a long with, I moved here from Chicago to live with my girlfriend who works for BCBG. I am working on my freelance marketing business. Currently I run a website, whitecottagedesigns.com, I would love to clean and organize for your family!!!
$18.00+ per hour for special needs
$18 per hour
Experienced babaysiter who works with twins and new born is looking for a new family to work.
I would charge based off of experience. I have 10+ years and charge 15-25 an hour.
Special needs care providers are generally paid $15-$22/hr.in my area. Yes, you should say that you have 6 years of experience even if it is volunteer work. Having a BA and an AA in child development would put you in the upper bracket of the pay scale that I have shared. I wish you the best.
From what I've gathered, most of those jobs have been through a PCA agency, which pays out a flat rate of $15/hr. Personally I don't feel as that is always adequate compensation depending on the job duties, but it does seem to be the going rate.
HI, my name is Andrea Ramirez... I am a young babysitting that love the kids a lot....I like to laugh, play, and learn from them...:)
I myself charged $9hr for all children did not matter if had disabilities or not they are all same to me.
I typically charge $15 an hour regardless of whether the child has special needs or not. And to answer your second question: I would say volunteering definitely counts!
The current rate of pay is $15-$20/hr.
15.00 to 20.00 hourly it depending on the amount of care is required.
Thank you for your question, Your experience as a volunteer absolutely still counts! In my experience, it completely depends on the level of care necessary to fulfill all job requests and the amount of experience you have within the age groups of the children you will be responsible for. In the Worcester area of Massachusetts, I would charge between $24 and $32/hour. For example, if you are caring for a single newborn that has been diagnosed with down syndrome, and perform tidying during nap time I think charging close to $24/hr would be appropriate. However, if you are watching three-year-old twins who have been diagnosed with autism disorder and learning with sensory limitations perhaps charging closer to $30/hr is more correlational to the job description. One other thing to be considered is if you have applicable experience with the type of therapy being performed. In this way, you as a caregiver can assist the therapist in performing routine therapeutic exercises when the therapist is not on the job to further assist progress. This is where I would apply the pay rate closest to $32/hr. I hope my explanation is clear! Best, Cassedi
I would charge around 15-20 depending on the care needed for the child
I personally think it really depends on a providers experience and accreditation, as well as the needs of the child. I am a behavioral therapist for children with autism- if a family is looking for a person to meet basic needs and not much more, pay should be similar to that of a typical functioning child. If the child has medical procedures, medication administration, seizures or things that require more hands on 'work' the pay should be above average ($17-25/hr) in my opinion.
$13-18 per day
My name is Pam Bongiorno. I have been a licensed day care provider in my home for 20 plus years. I am a proud parent of 10 year old twins. And now that they are older, I feel that I need to seperate my career and family life. One can check my profile on Care.com. I'm looking forward to talk further, Thank you, Pam Bongiorno
13 dollars per hour
I have gotten $15/hr working with 1 teenage boy with special needs.
Take care the children job is not easy like you think, some people said: Oh take care the children are so easy job, that is hug wrong!!
it has been 48 hours and my account is still not approved what do i do?
They are charging about $15-20.
20-30 is the rate i've been told as seen before
around 15 dollars an hour.
An early childhood care professional with specialized training, varied skills sets, related degrees, and experience should feel comfortable charging and receiving premium rates for the area in which they live.
if a family has premium service but care provider does not can they correspond
I have recently worked with a special needs kid and i got payed $11.75 per hour! But i am sure it's different all around!
I am charged the same as any other kid. 10-15 it depends on the type of job.
I would say at least 20-22$/hr if you have experience and extra qualifications. If you are not experienced with special needs though then pay might differ.
why can I not respond to my messages?
Some of them are charging $25
Hello! I'm Thalita, I arrived in San Diego to study and I am available to work with childrens.I have experiences with recreation and leisure, I did some courses . I consider myself a responsible and careful girl. I hope you like my profile. I'll love to take care of your kids ;)
I think 20.00 an hour is good for special needs . I also think a child that is VERY active and has you going the whole time you are at their home is is also a good rate . I have been at peoples houses they know their child is VERY active and they want to give or do not offer anymore pay to you is not a good thing either as they know their child is a handful but want the childcare for nothing practically . I learned my lesson there .Its very hard to be going going going the whole time
most families that I have babysat for that have kids with disabilities typically don't have the financials to pay a lot due to the extensive support they have to pay for there children to develop. typically hourly pay would be between 10-14
Depends on the severity of their medical needs, anywhere from 15-30 per hour
I currently care for a 7-year-old boy with downs syndrome, autistic and non-verbal. He is not toilet trained completely. MY pay rate is $27 per hour and I feel underpaid.
