Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are characterised by social-interaction difficulties, communication challenges and a tendency to engage in repetitive behaviours. However, symptoms and their severity vary widely across these three core areas. Taken together, they may result in relatively mild challenges for someone on the high functioning end of the autism spectrum. For others, symptoms may be more severe, as when repetitive behaviours and lack of spoken language interfere with everyday life.
Now families can experience that rest through Bridge to Care, where parents receive short-term respite while their children are engaged in fun activities tailored to their interests and abilities. We know each child has unique qualities and challenges, and we are excited to learn every nuance. If you have a child with a profound intellectual disability, there is a place for your family at Bridge to Care. Bridge to Care is a Not for Profit organization dedicated to providing support for families (without regard to race, religion or ethnicity) raising children who have special needs through short-term overnight care and activities allowing respite for their families. We want to change the face of disability services so that each family of a child with an intellectual disability has respite within reach and access to the community. Overnight respite allows parents to: Take time away and focus on their marriages. Devote more time to typical siblings. Continue their education to improve their family’s quality of life. Get ahead on work. Catch up with old friends. Best of all, let go and release any guilt or fear, because they know their child is happy and safe. Ebenezer Home celebrates children with special needs and provides relief to the extraordinary families who love them through short-term, overnight respite care. We authentically love all children that come to Ebenezer Home and their families. They inspire others. Their stories impact our lives in the most positive ways, and we strive to impact theirs by providing a safe, fun place full of adventure and activities made just for them. Ebenezer Home is designed around the children, we adjust to them, not them to us. The activities are carefully and strategically planned to meet the child where they are, with the purpose of bringing normalcy to childhood. We provide cozy and comfortable sleeping areas for safe and secure overnight stays, with constant and watchful care. Book for Free Consultation here
