Childcare for an autistic child

Scarlett
Montgomery, AL

I usually work from home but my company got bought and fired everyone so most likely my next job will be outside of the home. We have a 4 yr old with autism that is usually home with me. We now have to figure out what would be best for him for childcare. Any thoughts or experiences with daycares for autistic children?

    I send my 4 yo with ASD to public preschool for free with an IEP. Between school and ABA therapy, there isn't a ton of time needed to pay for extra child care. Other preschools/daycares in my area don't have the staff to deal with special needs kids... I would have to pay and organize OT, PT and speech services at a private school.
