We have a 4-year-old son who is on the autism spectrum. He is not severely autistic but he does require special care because compared to kids his age he is not as developed verbally or socially. He also has several dietary restrictions. He takes a while to let people into his life, so initially the job would consist of running errands, meal prep, or assisting my wife in other ways. The duties would shift to child care as our son became more familiar with the nanny. Child care would basically consist of taking him to various play activities and educational activities at home. Additional needs include pick up / drop off, light housekeeping, meal prep, having a reliable car, being comfortable with pets and a non-smoker.
