Program Description

The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region (PPYMCA) recently launched a new program that offers both respite and opportunity for social-emotional growth for both Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)/neurodiverse children and their caregivers, the Autism RISE (Respite Integration Social and Emotional well-being) program. Respite opportunity is twofold: for ASD and neurodiverse children to recreate and have fun in a safe environment; and respite for parents/caregivers so they may have time for themselves and/or for their other children
