Can an au pair care for a child with special needs?

Au Pairs are allowed to care for special needs children if the Au Pair has specifically identified their prior experience, skills or training in the care of special needs children. Some Au Pairs have previous experience working with special needs kids, early childhood education and pediatric nursing in their countries. Many Au Pairs volunteered at orphanages, hospitals and other places that required a special care experience.

There are usually a few Au Pairs who are working with the families with special needs child/children in the Au Pair cluster in Philadelphia, Bucks County and NJ. Those Au Pairs have previous documented experience caring for special needs children.Xiao

Also, the host family must sign an agreement indicating that they both recognize and accept the Au Pair’s level of experience.

We have  Au Pair Plus program and  Premiere Au Pair program that give more options to the parents who are looking for a very experienced Au Pair. Many of our available Au Pairs have broad experiences and are interested in caring for children with special needs.
