My 4-year-old son is special needs Autism specific and has sensory issues - I am going to be getting surgery and my husband has to work. I will be home at all times but due to the nature of the surgery I will be unable to care for him all the time and need assistance caring for him while my husband is at work. I will need the most assistance the first 3 weeks which would include playing with him, assisting at home ABA therapist, meals for him, cleaning up his toys and light housecleaning (vacuuming the living room where he plays and eats) , lifting him (he is about 40 pounds), diaper changes, keeping him from jumping on me, and keeping him from running out the front door or getting hurt... I need someone who knows how to handle a meltdown WITHOUT restraining him in anyway we use diversion and breathing exercises to calm him down. Additional needs include light housekeeping, meal prep, having a reliable car and being comfortable with pets. Family Age Groups: Infant. Diagnosis: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sensory Integration Disorder, Autism, Cognitive Disabilities, Developmental Delays, Speech Delay.
