Our nanny is pregnant, and will be going on maternity leave in a few months' time. We will need to replace her for her maternity period, and maybe beyond that if she decided not to come back to her job.

We have an 8yo NT DS and 3yo DS2 who has moderate to severe ASD and a severe speech and language delay. Ideally we would want a nanny with experience of autism and an interest in learning about ABA as DS does 18-20 hours of ABA a week, and we would like the nanny to be one of the tutors team. It would be a 3 days a week role.

Any suggestions of agencies I could go to who would help us recruit for this role please? We are in the south east, within the m25.

Thanks crumpets. I've made contact with them and we will pursue recruiting through them. They're pricey though, in terms of their fee and the hourly rates they require the nanny to be paid at. That said, they seem very professional and I'm impressed, and I hope that is reflected in the nannies they take on board. Any other suggestions gratefully received.
