We are seeking an occasional caregiver for our 10 yr. old son with autism. He is a gentle giant who is non-communicative but says words, sweet, and easy-going with no behavior issues. He is a big boy that requires re-direction often with obsessive behaviors and help in the bathroom. I’d ideally like someone to take him on walks and stay as active as possible. Furthermore, I’d like someone to help with consistency in the bathroom and help him with some ABA exercises. Mostly, he requires supervision to keep him safe as he can be impulsive. He is currently in the OU ABA program. We live in Troy. Prefer experience with ASD and own transportation. I’d like a part time schedule starting at about 3:30pm until 8:30pm 2-3 days per week. I’d like some occasional weekends that are flexible if you are able to do it, but this is not a requirement. If interested, please call Carrie Kennedy at 248-376-1640 or email email@example.com.

Easter Seals of Southeastern Michigan is now offering the P.L.A.Y. Project to children through age 6 with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The P.L.A.Y. Project was developed by Richard Solomon, MD as a "train the trainer" model for parents to be the key in their child's intervention. P.L.A.Y. refers to "Play and Language for Autistic Youngsters" and is designed to help children relove the three core deficits of autism: 1) self-isolation and imparied social skills; 2) language delay and impaired communication; and 3) stereotyped or repetitive behaviors. P.L.A.Y. is an intensive, cost-effective, structured intervention within the family home. To learn more about the P.L.A.Y. Project, please call toll free (800)-75-SEALS, ext 2706 or visit the Easter Seals Website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
