Special needs child care for 3rd grader with high function ASD

Family in Madison

My son is great one on one but the large group of the YMCA afterschool program at Shenck is too much for his autism-spectrum related sensory issues. While we had signed him up for after school tutoring at Shenck, for whatever reason he didn't make the cut. This was to start next Monday and I had already cancelled YMCA after school care in anticipation of him being in it--no one indicated to me he'd be rejected. Experience with kids with autism is necessary. My son is enthusiastic, passionate and energetic. He loves Minecraft, reading, Sonic the hedgehog, video games, and running outside, as well as music and other typical 3rd grade pastimes. He is very verbal and the only disruptive issues he potentially has are emotional flare ups when he doesn't get what he wants (more intense than typical kids) where he needs to step away and calm down. We could provide accommodations like a bungie chair (which helps with his sensory flare-ups) and a sensory bag (which he can retreat to when things get intense. We would provide you a copy of his IEP so everything is clear. However, our need is rather immediate because of the situation above. Please contact me at with your availability starting this week as it would be great to have you as an option. My son would need to be picked up from Schenk at 3:25 and I would come get him around 5:30. Thank you! Chris F.
