Hi Suzette,
In East Valley Regional Center, it depends on several things. On is how old your child is but I think that now the kicker is how much money you make. If you make a certain amount of money then regional center pays for respite on a sliding scale. But -- that might be when your child hits a certain age, too -- so go in and meet with them and find out. I'd heard it didn't used to work that way but things have changed.
