Our Respite Program was featured on the front page of the Indy Star on August 3rd. Below is the article and photos from the feature.
"Watch me!" Nine-year-old Constance Barnwell furiously pedaled her bike down the driveway and east on the street in front of her family's Northeastside home.
Seven-year-old Darius "DJ" Barnwell Jr. trailed after her — one hand in his mouth and the other gripping a tablet playing "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse." DJ ran just far enough to keep his sister in sight.
Tamika and Darius Barnwell stood nearby, smiling as they watched their children's antics.
Eighteen miles away, Renee Keltner and her daughters, Gabriel and Danni, were finishing their day.
A program launched late last year by the Autism Society of Indiana has helped both families make the most of those simple moments. The program provides up to 20 hours per week of respite care to families with children who have autism — kids like DJ, Gabriel and Danni.

In the summer of 2014, Indiana established a subdivision of the Division for Early Childhood of the Council for Exceptional Children.
The Division for Early Childhood (DEC) promotes policies and advances evidence-based practices that support families and enhance the optimal development of young children (0-8) who have or are at risk for developmental delays and disabilities. DEC is an international membership organization for those who work with or on behalf of young children (0-8) with disabilities and other special needs and their families.
We want to grow our Indiana DEC in order to expand the work we do for young children with special learning needs and their families.
For more information about membership, resources and information about DEC, please see the website.
