Take me to :
Respite is defined as: "a flexible, periodic, short-term break from care-giving for the purpose of rest and renewal for the family" (An Ideal Model for Children & Youth - Respite Services and Supports, June 2007)
ASD respite is a flexible, self-directed funding support. This funding will provide family members or guardians, temporary relief from the physical and emotional demands involved with caring for children with ASD.
Families and/or guardians caring for children who have a documented diagnosis within the Autism Spectrum Disorder from ages 0-17 may apply for ASD respite funding. The Elgin Respite Network committee accepts & reviews the applications and allocates the available resources.
Inquires can be directed to the Elgin Respite Network through:
