I received a little funding to hire a Personal Care Attendant
for my elementary-school aged child who has Asperger Syndrome. I haven't had to interview anyone for any kind of job before and while I assume I can fudge it, are there specific questions I can ask that will appear professional and not look like I'm a paranoid parent?
The PCA will mostly be doing child care during the summer months, such as taking my child swimming, hiking, going to the library, etc while I'm at work.
The PCA program has its own background check, so I'm good there. However, they won't hire PCAs so it's up to me. Thanks!
