  • I didn't completely understand your post. But I have a special needs 13 yo son who has a one on one worker. His worker is a black male college student, I am a white 37 yo female. We go places all together a lot and it's not an issue. I don't worry about what people think.

  • You just need to relax. My son (19 now) had a one on one worker for awhile and they took him alot of places without me. He was between 12-15 at the time. They are trained, go through background checks and know what they are doing.

  • Well, she is 18. Her seizures are recent? She is not otherwise mentally challenged? Then she can tell you if anything inappropriate happens or if she feels uncomfortable

  • Hello thanks for all your answers but I think some were confused I was saying I feel uncomfortable going out with her teachers but yesterday I forgot all about that when he came we went grocery shopping and nobody noticed because at times he had Brittany going arund with him getting things I needed as part of her home schooling it was fun both of her teachers are real nice and teach her at school.
