Hiring a Home Therapist

Shown below is a sample therapist ad which families can modify and use to suite their own needs when looking for therapists. People have had success in posting ads at churches, colleges, universities, with special education professors, high schools, and even craigslist. Many people also include a picture of their child in their ads. Some families use the term “therapists” while other families use the term “tutors” in describing those that work in home programs. It is sometimes helpful to give a bonus for working six months with certain minimum number of hours worked per week.
