you might have more luck if you explained it a bit more, Star smile

<and, ime, potential tutors (who are already childcarers) have been put off in the past by the description of "tutor" - think LA-style thoguhts of strict ABA rather than lovely playful natural environment training ABA>

Try asking on your local NAS mailing list - other parents may be able to suggest someone.

I'd start a new thread, Star - say you are looking for a SN nanny, part time, who is happy ot work within a framework.

you can find quite few people on childcare.co.uk too, and nannyjob - both are searchable by area.

basically, you're after someone who is happy ot work to a set of rules/targts, and who is happy/keen to train up and liaise with professionals, aren't you?

that's where we are wrt looking for someone - you get quite a few replies, so usual case of siftig through for suitability/personal preference etc.

Mumsnet isn't really the place to advertise jobs. It's far more a discussion forum. You may get more luck over on NetMums (such as local childcare board) and posting a job ad on Gumtree.

Sounds like you just need someone who is good with children, so any childcarer who can do the hours you require would be potentially a suitable person. Your son could meet them and then see how they get along - as that often is the key... the child needs to interact and trust the person doing the sessions.

So put in adverts what hours are, what pay would be. Mention that it will involve some play therapy with a child who has autism.

nick's right - not many threads advertising jobs here, but the odd one doesn't hurt, and if you don't ask you don't get wink

seriously, no harm in asking if anyone knows of someone looking for a job...

yes, netmums boards are good to look too.

Hi, I am struggling to get an ABA tutor for my 5 yr old ASD kid in Leicester. Any suggestions?

When we started out doing ABA (9 yrs ago) we advertised at the local university. There were many Psychology students desparate for work like that. Also try to get to know other parents doing ABA in your area - other tutors often want extra work!
