Autism SA offers eight weeks of school holiday programs over the year. Families registered for respite services are offered the opportunity to make selections from the scheduled activities prior to the school holiday period. Each day’s programmed activities cater for up to eight children per activity. Staffing ratios are individually assessed and usually range from 1 Staff: 1 child, to 1 staff: 4 children depending on the activity and needs of the children.
Families are required to cover the costs of the day’s programmed activities. Costs will vary according to the activity and will be advised at the time of making selections. Hours of operation are 9am – 4pm during the weekdays of the school holidays. This service is closed on public holidays. NDIS funding may be used to access this service, a quote can be obtained via the Autism SA info line (1300 288 476, Monday to Friday 9am-4pm).
