This is a hard one. Is she mainstreamed in school? Does she have an after school program? I'm not sure how they manage not to have daycare in the summer.

Could she go to a regular summer camp?

I'm in the Houston area and we have problems finding things in the summer for the 7 year old because the camps are too noisy. But, his mom is home so we have some options.

Is there a college near you? A student who is studying teaching or special education or pyschology might be willing to nanny.

Look at UTPB and seeing if they might have some students interested in a job over summer is a your best best. Have an 12 yr old with aspergers and its tough during the summer and I stay home with the kids!
