Try a specialist au pair agency

Conductive au pairs, fixed-term live-in conductors, have offered some families and conductors remarkably productive arrangements, and have made an important contribution to the long-term the spread of CE in some countries.

There have also arisen some extremely problematical situations.

One sensible way to protect both partners in such arrangements is to work via a professional, specialist au pair agency. A.P.EX.–ProAuPair is a nationwide agency operating in the United States

In June 2011, the US Department of State designated ProAuPair with the first and only dedicated Special Needs Live-In Child Care Au Pair Agency Program in the US allowing parents to hire European educated Special Needs Professionals. These women and men are looking to add to their experience a year or two of working and living with special needs children and their families in the United States.

Because of the underlying cultural exchange philosophy vs. a pure employment program, families can engage flexible & affordable special needs child care with the skills, qualifications, and attitude your family needs at very affordable rates. The minimum commitment and visa for a participant is 12 months and can be extended with the same or a different family for 6, 9, or 12 months.

In Belleview WA the Area Director of ProAuPair is conductor Zsuzsanna Balogh:

I fact, it's quite a Hungarian business:

  1. In the UK and around the wide English-speaking world agencies for nannies and au pairs are quite common, as is recruitment to work in families with 'special needs children'. This is page 1 of what a two- minute search on Google found:,or.r_cp.r_qf.&bvm=bv.49641647%2Cd.d2k%2Cpv.xjs.s.en_US.NyLNrjc7wJY.O&fp=a1081f9e2a065c5&biw=1366&bih=667

    I do not of course know whether all such agencies are good – usual advice: shop around and check out more than one.
