InterExchange Au Pair USA is not just another au pair agency—our organization is comprised of a close network of host families and au pairs. Our clusters around the U.S. and their Local Coordinators make the Au Pair USA family a supportive and fun community to be a part of!
This World Autism Awareness Day, we want to honor our fantastic host families who have children with autism and their au pairs, many of whom have gone above and beyond in their efforts to help and support their host families.

She became a part of their family, as well as his tutor at school! Watch the heartwarming video below:
