The Resource Exchange
Break Time provides a much-needed respite opportunity for parents or caregivers of children with a developmental disability such as autism, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome.
The program gives parents a four-hour break from the constant care required of a child or young adult with special health needs.
These may range from special feeding needs to behavioral challenges to a child who is nonverbal and uses a mobility chair. Additionally, the siblings of the child who has a developmental disability are encouraged to attend so parents have a total break from the physical and emotional demands required of providing constant care to a high-needs child. TRE's program is unusual as it is one of very few programs that accept siblings.
