• Delaware Autism Program Respite Care

    In October 2019, Governor John Carney announced new state assistance for the Delaware Autism Program that will allow the Christina School District to continue providing respite services for Delaware families in need.

    Christina School District – which operates the statewide program – also is agreeing to additional state oversight of the district’s administration of the program. That includes participation in a working group that will make recommendations on the future of the program and the services offered to Delaware families. This workgroup is led by the Delaware Department of Education and includes representatives of Autism Delaware, families, respite providers, districts, the Office of Management and Budget, the Controller General’s Office, the Department of Health and Social Services, and members of the General Assembly.
