Learn how to care for children with disabilities and provide respite care. CARING CAMPUS is a program that prepares college aged students and other adults to offer first-rate care for children who have mild to moderate disabilities and/or enter the field of special education some day. Caring for a child with special needs can be a 24-hour-a-day job, with limited downtime to take care of family matters, catch a movie or just relax on the sofa. Parents of children with disabilities desperately need a break to rest, relieve stress and get re-energized. Respite care for a child with disabilities is something that every parent asks for, but few ever get.
Unlike families of typical children, who can hire a neighborhood teenager to baby-sit when they need a night out, respite care requires someone with training and confidence to tend to the child’s needs.
