“HCSS provides up to $250 (per request) in respite funding for our clients to participate in extracurricular or life skill development activities. It may not be used for therapy services, daycare, family vacations or expenses related to vacations, or memberships to local museums or public attractions, including admission tickets/passes to YMCA, local pools, Kings Dominion or Busch Gardens/Water Country. It is intended to offer an individual with a developmental delay an opportunity for a fun, enriching program that he/she would not get in the academic/therapy arena. Examples include life skills, tutoring, camps, dance classes, art classes, karate, gymnastics, and swimming lessons.”
