Respite

Do you need a break? Enjoy time to yourself or with your family while your child with autism has fun with his/her new friends!

Raising a child with autism is extremely difficult and caregivers are rarely able to take much needed time for themselves.  OASIS NC recognizes this need and wants to help by offering two services: Parents’ Night Out and Saturday Socials.
Goals:
Caregivers will be able to:

  • Go out to eat, go to the beach, go grocery shopping, or take a nap!
  • Trust their child is being well taken care of by a staff that understands autism and can respond to their needs.
  • Be kid free for a few hours… what’s that like??!!

Children will be able to:

  • Make new friends
  • Experience typical play-date activities
  • Have fun!

Activities:

  • Make a snack/craft
  • Play games
  • Tell jokes
  • Watch a movie
