    This is great feedback Tammy. The Autism Society of North Carolina supports state policies that would allow for respite to take place either outside the home, or inside of it, depending on the needs of the caregiver and individual. Respite options should be flexible enough to address the needs of a particular situation, while still ensuring health, safety and quality care.
