How does AtypicalSmile work?

Our goal

AtypicalSMILE aims to make it easy for families of individuals with special needs (e.g. autism, Down syndrome, etc) to connect with caregivers.

To use our service, you just sign up as a family or a caregiver by creating a profile.

Your last name and e-mail address remain confidential until you decide to share them to those of your choice. We will need your e-mail to activate your account. The link to do so will be received by e-mail.

Sign up as a family.

Fill out the form. Your e-mail and surname will not be openly accesible.

Provide details here which will allow a caregiver to clearly understand what you are looking for.

You can now start your search and will soon receive an e-mail with possible candidates!

Select those that seem to best correspond to your needs…

By looking closely at their profiles…

And by corresponding with them anonymously through our messaging system.

Note that we cannot verify the veracity of the announces posted – you need to do it! Please read our general conditions.

It’s the same for carers!
