Weekend Respite Programming

  • Respite care is an essential part of the overall support that families need to create stability in their homes. Our ‘Saturday Skill Builders’ program meets twice per month and offers weekend respite for children ages 8 to 12 who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This program is designed to meet the behavioral needs of children who have challenging behaviors and require more intensive supervision. With 1:1 – 1:2 staff/child ratios, our highly trained staff will utilize Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA0 and other therapies in a safe, structured, fun environment where theme-based activities will assist with fine and gross motor development, promote and enhance communication, and build leisure, play and social skills.
