The Autism Nanny Boutique (ANB) is being designed to offer a superior level of childcare for individuals and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. It is an initiative of Hope 4 Autism.
"The ANB exists after a life threatening incident occurred between my daughter and a home health aide who was not properly trained to care for a child with special needs. This incident led to an overnight hospital stay that required a thorough evaluation and eventually an investigation conducted by the Department of Public Health. No caregiver should have to worry about the level of care their child is receiving in their absence. Nor should the type of care received be limited by income. Individuals caring for children should work in this field because he or she loves and understands children with special needs. Not just to receive a steady paycheck. My mission and vision for the Autism Nanny Boutique is to hire and train college educated individuals with an interest in supporting families affected by autism. I am also thrilled to raise money to support the low/no income fund for families who are in need of support and deserving of adequate childcare.
