Australian families with children with severe disabilities, or those with conditions that are not yet diagnosed, face particular challenges when it comes to finding skilled childcare. PROaupair’s professional au pairs include paediatric nurses and occupational therapists who are not only trained to provide support, but also genuinely want to work with children with special needs. Their background and expertise guides them in creating a care plan that is tailored to the child, regardless of the child’s abilities.


Meet Bella & Occupational Therapist Joanna

Eight-year-old Bella has global developmental delays that are undiagnosed. Her parents wanted an au pair that had a passion for children, particularly those with special needs. They found what they were looking for in Johanna, a professional au pair and occupational therapist from Germany, who has made a positive difference in Bella’s life.
