Many PROaupair host families have children with developmental delays. These can vary from impairments of speech or language to problems with movement and motor skills to genetic delays such as Down syndrome. PROaupair’s caregivers are attuned to a child’s individual needs and use their extensive training to ensure each child can reach his or her full potential. They provide high quality, skilled care depending upon the child’s diagnosis – implementing therapy homework, creating routines and generally providing a warm, supportive environment.
