A family is looking for a graduate student who is interested in doing some babysitting for two twins who are both diagnosed with ASD.

Parents primary language is Mandarin, but their English is totally fluent and they can switch between them without difficulty so language needs aren’t a factor. For the weekends, it would only be for 1-2 hours, similar for the weekdays from 4-7pm.
