Training:  Maximizing the Respite Care Experience

Parents have consistently reported the critical nature of training for respite personnel in order for them to feel comfortable leaving their child (of any age) in someone else’s care.  A much-needed break is only possible when they know that the respite provider understands the complex and unique needs of individuals with autism so he or she can keep their child safe.  Participants will review the characteristics of autism spectrum disorder and discuss communication techniques, challenging behavior, and parent-provider collaboration.
