    a child If you are one of the 14 percent of adults who has a child with disabilities the change may seem overwhelming Caring for a child without disabilities is often exhausting Caring for a disabled child is not just exhausting it is also challenging and can even be overwhelming You feel you cannot trust the care of your child to untrained people so calling a teenage baby sitter to give you even a few hours of free time is not an option Close family members may not even be able to step in and help out Stress with the daily physical care of your child with disabilities is coupled with extra duties You likely have frequent appointments you have to go to where your child receives medical care and or therapy You may even be employed and have other children to care for You feel stressed but you also feel guilty that you feel stressed At least take comfort in the knowledge that you are not the only caregiver that experiences these feelings It is so common for caregivers of a child with disabilities or of a disabled adult to feel stressed it has been given a name Caregiver Stress Syndrome You may not even realize you are suffering in this way since you are so used to being tired and having more things to do than you can actually accomplish But there are some real signs you need to pay attention to that indicate you need a break If you recognize yourself in just a few of the items on this list you need a temporary break from your responsibility which is really the definition for respite care Signs you need a respite break Changes in your sleep patterns Either getting too much or not enough sleep Frequent non specific aches and pains including headaches Frequent feelings of anger Easily irritated for no definable specific reason other than you are tired and overwhelmed Drinking too much alcohol or taking too many prescription drugs Forgetting things such as appointments Loss of interest in activities you used to enjoy Constant feelings of exhaustion Always rushing because there just simply is not enough time to do what you need to do You do not want to get out of bed in the morning and face another day Feelings of resentment that your life is not how you expected it to be Frequent colds and illnesses caused by not properly taking care of yourself and compromising your diet and exercise programs Importance of respite care Respite care gives you the temporary relief you need to replenish your emotional and physical health You will find renewed energy for your job and other family members You can choose to have respite care for your child with disabilities for a few hours or a few days You can schedule it to occur on a regular basis or arrange for it when you feel you really you really need it You can arrange for the care to be given in your own home find a facility that offers respite care for a child with disabilities or ask a family member friend neighbor or member of your faith community whom you trust There are even programs such as the REST respite education and support tools program that trains volunteers to become volunteer respite care workers Respite care should be viewed as a necessity not a luxury Your entire family will benefit as you become rested and as your own health improves Blog An Autism Diagnosis Now What Having a child diagnosed with autism is a significant event in a parent s life If you are in this situation it has likely come as a powerful emotional blow For many parents an autism diagnosis is an indication that the life they thought they thought their child was going to have is not exactly to be The diagnosis may seem vague due to the condition s spectrum nature this means that it varies wildly from individual to individual Some kids may struggle with autism for the rest of their lives while others may fall off the spectrum at some point so that they can no longer be considered autistic The point to remember at all times is that each case is unique Your child will respond differently to treatment and therefore their prognosis is different How you handle it is key to the getting the best possible outcome Learn As Much as You Can The diagnosis can make a parent apprehensive about the future but as with many things in life the solution is education There are multiple treatment programs for child disabilities like autism along with multiple philosophies and methods of treatment The problem is that there are not many studies comparing the different programs as a parent with a newly diagnosed autistic child you will have your work cut out for you when it comes to choosing one You should acquire as much knowledge as you can about the condition and the methods used to manage it Books are an excellent resource on child disabilities and there are many on the subject of raising autistic children Understanding the condition will not magically make everything easier but it will go a long way to towards improving your experience and helping you to remain patient Seek Support Talking about autism with others can help to ease your anxieties and is a coping method recommended by autism advocacy group Autism Speaks Support groups are good places to do this as they can provide the comfort and reassurance that you will need as the parent of an autistic child You get to talk openly about autism with other parents who have faced the same situation This can help you to come to terms with your fears and start the process of overcoming them The Marklund Day School has Certified Autism Specialists on staff who can serve as excellent resources for managing educational programs for your child Seek Treatment Getting help soon
