Service description:
82 Northampton Road provides short breaks (respite care) to families with children with a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) aged between 5 and 18 years. Children who use the service tend to be in special rather than mainstream education. Referrals to the service are accepted via Professionals only. The home provides a countywide service for children who need to receive these breaks within a structured environment, using a TEACCH approach. Short breaks provide both the parents and child with a positive experience, enabling families to "recharge" their batteries in the knowledge that their child is in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment. In the main, short breaks do not exceed more than 3 to 4 days in any one stay. All children receive a copy of the 82 Northampton Rd children's guide, and parents receive a copy of the 82 Northampton Rd statement of purpose.
