What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk,

I believe you are looking for respite care.  Here are a few suggested websites to help you connect with associations. (I do not know where you live, so you may need to "dig" in these websites for resources in your area)  Please note- I am not suggesting any one service. You will need to make sure that the respite services offered have state accepted credentials and are appropriate for your child.

Good luck!
