I just retired from teaching and several of my kids had multiple disabilities. One of my mom's had a hard time finding daycare for her blind child so she clung closely to the place that would take him. I would volunteer to go out there and help them with little methods for including and teaching him there, so I know how hard it is and even more difficult to get respite and help for our older children with disabilities. Sometimes the Exceptional Children's Department in the school system has resources that can help. Here we have a place called "Respite Care" that would watch older kids with disabilities after school or just when the parents needed to take a break. Look into your local chapter of ARC as they sometimes have care for older kids. At any rate, I found a good list of things to look for in a care facilitiy at this link: http://disability.about.com/od/ChoosingC...
