Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) are common neurobehavioral conditions. PROaupair’s professional au pairs include early childhood educators, paediatric nurses, and kindergarten teachers who have the skills and training to support the behavioural and emotional challenges common with an ADD/ADHD diagnosis. Our au pairs incorporate therapies and routines to help children with ADD/ADHD solve problems, reduce impulsive behaviour, get along with others, and minimise distractions.

Six-year-old Griffin was recently diagnosed with ADHD and requires medication. His mum Laurel hired Ben, a professional au pair and paediatric nurse, to care for Griffin and to help him with day-to-day needs, from taking his medicine to focusing his attention.
