Family Respite Project - Letter of Information for Families

Dear Parent/Guardian:
Thank you for your interest in the Family Respite Project being offered by the Autism Behavioural Science Graduate Certificate program at Fanshawe College.  Upon completion of their program, our Autism Behavioural Science students will have a firm grounding in the principles and practices of Applied Behavioural Analysis (ABA).  Additionally, our graduates will learn about evidence-based practices in autism treatment, understand the characteristics of ASD and will have increased knowledge of child development as it relates to ASD. 
What is the Respite Project?
In the Fall Term, students take a course entitled Working with Families and Teams.  This course introduces students to the interpersonal skills required to work collaboratively with families of children with ASD, and the members of a multidisciplinary team.  To enhance their learning in this course, and to better appreciate the realities of supporting a family with ASD, we would like our students to participate in providing respite support to a local family.
They will be required, as one of their course assignments, to complete approximately 10 hours of respite support to an identified, matched family.  This short-term, quality respite care will be provided to consenting families at no cost.
