  • In my county, the special needs schools I worked for offer respite services on the weekends for tired moms and dads. This allows trained professionals to engage in stimulating activities with your child while you get a little break. If you're looking for something to do together, this could be a good resource as well because I'm sure they have new ideas!

  • There are programs in the schools for them and year long programs. You have to check where you live and see what they have to offer. Also ask his doctor for help on referals. There are people out there to help you. I would like to say to you be strong keep looking and asking you are doing the right thing. You just have to find a confortable place for him. Be Blessed
