Respite is a short break for families caring for someone at home who has special needs. Special needs can be developmental delays, learning disabilities, physical disabilities, or a mental health diagnosis.

Although these events are for children with special needs and their siblings or adults with Intellectual Developmental Disabilities, the Lifespan Respite Network serves individuals of all ages. For more
