CHILD CARE FOR FAMILIES WITH SPECIAL DEVELOPMENTAL NEEDS
Children with special needs often need extra care and understanding, and not all child care providers can guarantee that. Apex Social is committed to helping families find experienced caregivers who are trained and motivated to care for such children. They also understand the unique needs of other children in the same family.
The professionals at Apex Social have degrees in fields like pediatric nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, early childhood education, and special needs education. They have experience working with children who have various special needs, such as autism spectrum disorder, ADD/ADHD, Down syndrome, diabetes, epilepsy, and other physical and mental delays.
Candidates in the Apex Social program are interested in gaining professional experience and exploring different parts of the U.S. for a year or two. Since Apex Social recruits candidates directly from European and American universities, vocational training schools, hospitals, and organizations like the German Red Cross, families can be confident that they will receive high-quality live-in child care from these professionals.

Families with kids who have special needs often have other children without delays or disabilities in the same home. Our Care Professionals are skilled at managing the needs of all children in a family, making sure each child gets the special attention and support they need.
Special Needs Disclosure
Apex Social is designated by the U.S. Department of State as an official Care Professional program sponsor. The Department of State doesn’t specify what “special needs” means and emphasizes that host families, not program sponsors, should identify their children’s special needs. Families should choose a Care Professional based on their assessment of the professional’s skills, education, and training. It’s important to note that a Care Professional is not meant to substitute for the services provided by other special care or education providers, like therapists or teachers.
