Finding the right caregiver for an Autistic Child

Its amazing how people shun away to babysit an autistic child; the intimidation of dealing with a child that cannot be tended to by a video game for hours is astonishing. Having to actually interact, and perhaps do something educational is beyond comprehension for most. Then if the kid is non-verbal, you fear that he cannot express abuse. Its heart-wrenching to choose between trusting the child to someone, or staying home not making money and having no life!
