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.

STATEMENT FROM DANA RENAY, CHIEF EXECUTIVE ALLY, AUTISM SOCIETY OF INDIANA
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released the new Autism prevalence rates of
1 in 45 from a survey conducted where parents were asked a series of questions related to specific diagnoses of their children.
“All that matters is that all people affected by Autism have the same opportunities as everyone else; are afforded the basic right to maximize their quality of life, and live in a world where they are always respected, valued and assured the highest dignity” said Dana Renay, Chief Executive Ally.
The Autism Society of Indiana is, as we always have been, committed to improving the quality of life of those with Autism across the entire lifespan. For more information about how ASI can help, call 800-609-8449 or email email@example.com
