Respite Care:

Respite is a short period of rest for caregivers and families from the demands of caring for a child with special needs.   Respite care workers provide care and supervision of the child, either in or outside the family home, during non-academic program hours.  The Respite Care Program will work with families to create an individualized care plan that meets the needs of each child and their caregiver(s), recruit and train respite care workers, and target opportunities to allow for family involvement in social and cultural events.
