©2005. By Lisa Ackerman Lieberman, MSW, LCSW. This unique guide focuses on the important topic of finding in-home care for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The author, who has successfully employed in-home providers for many years, discusses the pros and cons of additional family support and outlines the family scenarios that could benefit from this option. Chapters include: deciding what kind of care is best for you and your family; defining your family culture and needs; clarifying job responsibilities; finding quality candidates; screening applicants; getting the most from a face-to-face interview; including your child in the hiring process; choosing your final candidate(s); making the offer; communication tools that keep everyone informed; training; establishing clear relationship boundaries; letting an employee go; and parent reflections and feedback from in-home providers. Filled with sample questions, checklists, and worksheets, as well as a wealth of practical tips and strategies, this comprehensive handbook is the first of its kind in the ASD literature. (Softcover; 198 pages.)
