This collection of five factsheets provides basic information about the need for and provision of respite care services for particular populations. Each factsheet is presented in a format which provides some background information on the population, a brief discussion of the purpose of respite care programs for this group, a discussion of the characteristics of the population and/or program considerations, and a conclusion. A list of several suggested references and organizational resources completes each factsheet. Factsheets are titled: "Respite Care for Children Who Are Medically Fragile"; "Crisis Nursery Care for Infants and Children Who Are Medically Fragile"; "Respite Care for Children with Developmental and/or Physical Disabilities: A Parent's Perspective"; "Respite Care for Children with Autism"; and "Respite Care for Children with HIV-Related Conditions."
