Your Help Matters
There are many large and small ways you can still lend a hand.
KVC Missouri provides a robust offering of trainings and community outreach events to support the needs of children and families across the state.
Autism Respite Program
KVC Missouri’s in-facility and in-home respite programs help youth on the autism spectrum and their families balance their own needs, while providing their child or children with treatment and opportunities to develop independent living skills.
A specially designed and updated respite home is available for day and overnight respite care. This includes a structured routine, needs-based programming and a safe environment that supports the child’s move toward self-sufficiency. As the children learn life skills, they also participate in activities that help transfer these skills across settings.
In-home respite staff support children in acquiring appropriate behaviors for their home and in the community through working to increase independent living and social skills, thereby allowing children to remain in their home and community.
All services are individualized to meet the child or children’s specific needs. All services provide:
- Social skills instruction
- Life skills focus
- Behavioral and clinical therapy
- Sensory integration/individual sensory diets
- Parent education
- Community-based outings
