Continue to allow parents to br paid attendant

My 9 year old ASD, ADHD child needs constant care and is very selective of who cares for him. To be able to have his mom care for him and get paid to help cover his expenses has been extremely beneficial and crucial for his emotional and psychological development. Please continue to allow parents to be eligible to be paid attendants. No one knows their client better and provide better care while making sure the pay goes back to the client/child for their needs.
