The purpose of this orientation program is to give you basic information about what it takes to be a respite provider.  Our goal is to provide an online orientation for individuals who are interested in becoming respite providers for the Nebraska Lifespan Respite Network.  Current respite providers who have not taken the orientation are also encouraged to do so.

Behavior has purpose.  Individuals who are compliant behave that way because it works for them. Those individuals that are more difficult to work with are likely to engage in challenging behaviors because it meets their needs.
