As a mother of a son who has autism, I know how hard it is to find time for yourself amidst all the therapy visits, advocating, meetings, and behavior management plans. Specially trained sitters can be hard to find and cost more than sitters for neurotypical children.
God has laid it on my heart to establish Intermission: Parent Assist Inc. to help other moms who are going through journeys similar to what I have experienced. I want to see moms who are struggling to juggle therapy schedules and special needs and advocacy be able to have a moment of respite. Our mission at Intermission: Parent Assist Inc. is to help these moms get some time off to tend to their own needs, by covering the fees for babysitting services. We will help you find and pay for babysitting services with staff who are trained in how to work well with children on the autism spectrum. Come check out our FB page!
If you are a mom in need of special needs babysitting services, reach out to our email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are an OT, RBT, BCBA, or have experience working with children on the autism spectrum, and you would like to join our cause and be a babysitter for moms in need, please email us at email@example.com to discuss! We’d love to expand
If you would like to donate a tax deductible contribution towards helping special needs moms get a break, you can donate here!
Thank you so much to all who have contributed encouragement, prayer, time, and money to our mission!
