The Medicaid waiver provides respite care. It would be in addition to the services you already get. Contact the MH/IDD department in your county. Also call any schools in your area that have education majors. Our local university has a program that provides free respite through the education department. I also have a prescription for Ativan. DD is 14 and has ADHD, Aspergers and ODD. My twin sons turn 7 next week. DH works out of state and is gone M - F.
