Does anyone know of any shadows or one-to-one assistants available for next school year in central NJ for a child who has Asperger's (preferably someone trained in the field or willing to be trained.)? I am not sure it will work out, but I am working on obtaining funding for a such a shadow. Please post or PM me if you have any ideas. I will be able to check my messages until Sunday morning (before Pesach.) And then will check them again regularly once I return from Pesach vacation.

Just a little background information -- The child is a 7 yr old boy in an all boy's yeshiva. He is smart and really quite sweet once you get to know him. He's funny in his own way and has personality. He has difficulty expressing himself appropriately. For example, someone looks at him funny and he punches the kid rather than question why or walk away from the kid. He can't interpret other's emotions well either. Academically, he is currently at the top of his class as he has completed Pre1A twice.
