Autism and Christmas - Holidays can be a big adjustment
Holidays and Christmas are a big adjustment for children with Autism.
The COVID-19 Pandemix and the holiday season may create increased stresses for children on the autism spectrum.
Think about creating a visual calendar with what activities will happen when; clearly communicating the challenges the person wit autism if facing to family and friends so things do not get worse; and a gradual decorating of the house.
This time of year can be stressful for children with autism as it is, let alone a global pandemic.
Change is a usual thing that happens at this time of year with Christmas and everything that comes along with this season, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic there are larger changes that are difficult for children with autism.
