  • A Stranger Among Us: Hiring In-Home Support for a Child or Young Adult with Disabilities

    http://www.disabilityinthefamily.com
    Making the decision to bring a “stranger” into your home to care for your child is a difficult one. However, after reading this book, the process of hiring in-home care providers will seem much less intimidating. Based on the author’s many years of experience both as a parent and a professional, this one-of-a-kind book starts out discussing the pros and cons of hiring in-home care providers for children with disabilities. The author breaks down the process and takes the reader step-by-step through the various stages, starting with assessing the needs of the child and the family, including their core values, to advertising for, interviewing, hiring and training a care provider. Even parents who are only looking for occasional respite care will find this a valuable resource.
