Children with autism require special care and understanding that is often beyond the capabilities of traditional childcare providers. PROaupair’s professional au pairs have experience working with children with autism. The majority of au pairs are trained occupational therapists. Occupational therapists are an ideal choice for families with children with autism as they can assist children in achieving developmental milestones and help to facilitate normal learning and development.

 

Meet Mikey & Occupational Therapist Julia

When he was a year old, Mikey was diagnosed with autism. His family realised that he would need additional support and turned to PROaupair to help them find professional au pairs who were also trained occupational therapists. Julia is one of many professional au pairs who have lived and worked with the family since Mikey’s diagnosis.
