My middle daughter is 7 and has PPD. It's a type of Autism which basically means she doesn't follow the typical symptoms of autism but does have a lot of the typical behaviors problems that autistic kids have. So the state has approved her for A Personal Assistance to help us in the home. Right now just 8hrs a wk but it might go up soon. I have decided that it would be best if I interview my own staff and hire them myself instead of going through a company because I know my kid the best and Ive had an agency hiring the staff and shes pretty flakey she misses a lot of days and always changes her schedule. I want to dictate the schedule myself and hire someone who will won't keep asking for changes. I have a few ideas about what I want to ask during an interview but I think a few more would be good. At least 10. I know I'm only talking a few hrs right now but they will be paid $12 an he which is pretty dang good around here and it could be more hrs. I just have to wait and see what gets approved!
