SuperSitters are Super Support Care Workers.
Support for you and your family when you need it the most.
When you need an afternoon off, a night out to unwind, or support on special occasions, you can call on our SuperSitters child minding service
abalink’s SuperSitters service provides specialist child minding care for children and adolescents with autism. SuperSitters are highly trained therapists and will support your child in the comfort of your own home or community setting.
Unlike conventional child minders, abalink’s SuperSitters have all completed Behavioural Intervention therapy training and are working in the field. This means you have the support you need and can leave home with the peace of mind that they can handle any behavioural crisis.
