I am desperately seeking child care for a single day while my family is on vaction to Orlando Florida.

My child is has autism and is nonverbal.

I have signed up for care.com and sitter city which has been absolutely, no help.
I posted that I would pay $50 an hour for a qualified sitter.
I recieved 185 replies in less than an hour but none that had any experience with special needs children.

Please help, I am unable to bring any one else to help. I need to find a qualified person.

Call local agencies and ask what people use for respite care. I'd seriously be worried someone would try to lie about their experience. đŸ˜±

Search for the colleges around that area and email the education departments. It's in between semesters but there are likely special ed teaching students who could help.

I'd find a way to bring someone or not go on a vacation like that.
