Nanny or After-school Care for son with HF-Autism

Wed 19 Apr 2017 12:16pm
Topics:

Does anyone know of any agencies who specialise in nannies with experience of kids with Autism, please? Our nanny of 4 years has just told us she'll be leaving in September. Our 4 year-old daughter and 7 year-old son (who has HF-Autism and Anxiety) aren't happy! We're looking for someone who can help us with after-school care. We live in Hackney, North London. Please do kindly pass on any possible leads.

Thank you very much!
