Free (in return for companion services)
Free furnished room with private full bath in return for periodic companion services for our 18-year old high functioning autistic daughter. She is verbal, affectionate and participates in a variety of activities, including Special Olympics, tennis, basketball and crafting. She is capable of dressing herself and doing chores around the house.
Hours can be structured around a job or college schedule, but would include some of the following: driving her to and/or from school or aftercare and weekend events; spending time with her in our home and around our Silver Spring neighborhood, which is located near the beltway and convenient to metro and bus lines; and watching her in the evenings and occasional overnights to provide us some respite. Applicants preferrably would have experience working with autistic children or adults or have experience with administration of medications, have their own car, and a clean driving record.
We estimate that furnished private rooms with private baths in the Silver Spring area go for approximately $750/month. Room would be free in return for an average of 10 hours a week of assistance with our daughter.
This is a great opportunity for a NIH, FDA or Walter Reed researcher or medical personnel.
