We are looking for a caregiver for our 8yo son. This would either be after school care or all day care, and would involve some driving to his therapies.
He's a happy kid that loves the outdoors and water, and being out of the house in general. He does talk but communication is delayed. He mostly scripts or repeats what you say, but does get his needs known. He is potty trained, but needs a little supervision. He has meltdowns like most kids with ASD, but they are short and he is usually easily redirected. We have his room and backyard all setup for sensory needs to help calm him down. He will test limits and act out at first, so he needs someone that is firm with him. Once he learns 'the rules' and gets to know someone, then he's usually pretty good.
