Holidays and Christmas are a big adjustment for children with autism. The COVID-19 pandemic 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 with autism is 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 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic there are larger changes that are difficult for children with autism. Not seeing certain family members, or going to certain places may be super difficult for an autistic child to understand. They key is make plans and visual boards so your child can see what is happening when during this Christmas period. --- Support this podcast:
