When my son Lucas was young, I had in home respite care services that helped me become a better mother and establish myself as a behavior analyst. Respite care for autism is tough to find though, and many autism parents do not know where to turn or where to look. That is why in today’s video blog I am sharing some tips on what resources you can use to find a respite provider. I will also talk about why respite care for special needs children is important for staying healthy and stress free as a parent.

And it does not have to be a stranger either to start getting help with autism children. Many times, parents are scared to look for au pairs for children with autism, or nannies because they have trust issues. And other times, finding babysitters for autism, finding nannies for autism, or other autism caregivers is nearly impossible. But you can even just call up a relative, the child’s grandparents, or a close friend to provide respite care. The important part is that you do something, and respite care is one of the best solutions to start reducing stress for autism parents and maintaining autism burnout.
