Lehigh Township: Bethany to host autism respite April 14

Wednesday, March 7, 2018 by The Press in Columns

Bethany Wesleyan Church, 675 Blue Mountain Drive, Cherryville, will be holding an autism respite 11 a.m.-3 p.m. April 14.

This is an event for children, 2 to 21 years old, diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as their siblings with or without a diagnosis.

The respite program provides parents a four-hour break, while their child enjoys a day full of fun.

Respite care helps maintain family stability and provides opportunities for the child to participate in social activities.

This is a free event, but all children must be registered. Contact Michele Kehlor at 484-221-3046 or
