Respite for Caregivers

Planned Respite is a program that helps enrolled caregivers of children with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED) learn the skills necessary for getting respite care. 

Planned Respite teaches caregivers how to find respite providers and to train those providers on how to care for their children. Planned Respite also gives caregivers some immediately-needed respite. 

Caregivers of children, ages 2-15, with Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED) are eligible to participate in Planned Respite. Planned Respite lasts about 3 months. Families may enroll once.
