Families caring at home for individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities may need additional help from time to time to handle particular challenges.  Services may be needed to assist with everyday issues or special needs that arise on a crisis basis, such as when a caregiver is ill.
 
DDI offers a variety of Family Support Services for families with young children as well as those with adult children. These services such as respite, after school programs and consultative services, provide assistance so that families can work through challenging situations and stay together.
