Caring for a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be as rewarding and challenging as parenting any child and every family deserves a break. Caregivers need to take care of themselves too and respite services can give families the time they need to focus on themselves and other important responsibilities for a few hours or days each week.
What Does Respite Care Involve?
Respite care provides short term relief for families and caregivers of children with ASD. This care can take place at home or our clinic.
There is no one size fits all care plan for ASD as every child has varying needs. Therefore, it is vital for families to feel their child’s needs can be met in their absence, especially if there are behavioural difficulties and sensory preferences to consider.
Finding a suitable short term care for a child with ASD can be difficult for families.. This is where Papillon Family Health can help. At our centre, our team of specialists are equipped to understand each child’s needs and provide a safe space where the child can have fun, learn and interact with other children.
