Our specialised recruitment and training service for families of neurodivergent children

We are delighted to introduce our specialised recruitment service for families who have children who are neurodivergent. As a strongly developed multi-disciplinary team with evidenced-based practices in the field of neurodevelopment, we understand the unique and very specific challenges and support needs that come with raising a child who has a differently wired brain and different learning abilities, and our mission is to help families like yours find the right support and guidance to thrive.

Our facilitators/au pairs/tutors are trained by the NDC Facilitation Academy to provide the personalised support to help your child/family member with their presenting need and developing their full potential. Whether the need is to help with executive functioning, motivation, academics, social skills or a combination of these, we can help you on your journey of finding the right ‘helping hand’.

Who pays my salary?

The employer (family) will provide you with a contract. Please do not start working without a signed contract in place. The employer will pay your salary as an employee of their family.

How long can this process take?

There are many factors that may affect the duration of this process, such as:

  • an individual’s notice period.
  • requirements that are unique and specific to a child’s profile, possibly prolonging the time to find a suitable individual to meet these needs.

Should there be no delays as mentioned above, the process for an individual’s placement can typically be between 3-4 weeks of officially starting the process.

Any guarantee for long-term placement?

Unfortunately, dealing with people and the variables in life, we cannot guarantee anything. What we can guarantee, is that we will conduct a thorough interview with potential employees, asking the necessary questions about longevity, future plans, and other jobs they may be applying for at that time. We also conduct reference and criminal checks. Furthermore, we provide the post onboarding support mentioned in our service.

What can I expect to pay an au pair/facilitator?

Typically, the hourly rates range from R 80 to R 200 per hour. Generally, the fewer hours worked, the higher the hourly rate, and conversely, the more hours worked, the lower the rate. It is important to note that these figures serve as guidelines, and actual rates will depend on the specific hours and days the candidate is needed for work, as well as the candidate's experience and qualifications. We will be able to guide you with this.

What can I expect to pay a tutor?

Tuition fees differ across different educational levels, including early childhood development (ECD) and foundation, intermediate, and high school tutoring. Our tutors specialising in primary school subjects have the opportunity to earn at least R 200 per hour, while high school tutors can earn R 300 per hour. However, these rates may be subject to specific requirements requested by families for their children.
