Enjoying The Christmas Season With Your Child With Special Needs

eastsideGeneral

The Christmas season whilst filled with many joyful things can be a tough time especially for families with special needs. Sometimes it can feel like there are endless struggles and meltdowns. Sometimes we may even wish our kids could just go back to school and have the structure and routine they are used to. It can be hard to navigate the way forward and work out what to do to enjoy this season as a family. Lisa Jo Rudy from Very Well Family is a specialist in autism, and has some great suggestions to help us manage this time effectively. These include:

  • Avoid crowds
  • Make swaps and adjustments
  • Worry less about “age-appropriate” experiences
  • Be gentle with yourself and your child
