EVV / Severe aggression

OUR son is severe disable. Autistic and Non verbal, he can be severe aggressive. He loves iPhones. The attendant can not use iPhone in front of him, otherwise he will have behaviors. EVVV is a big obstacle to find new attendants, to track the specific time of services in front of him, specially if the app is not working.

I'm trying to understand why somebody would like to work for my son for 12.00, without any benefits and get bitten for using an iPhone? why anyone would work for a disable individual?
