Holiday Tip #10 for Parents of Children with Autism

It’s 3 days to Christmas and the kids are getting antsy. “Outside to play now!” and no one dresses fancy.
Dec. 22            Day 10   Sensory Overload.
The sights, sounds, smells and activities of Christmas are comforting to some, and menacing to others. Be mindful of that as you enter different environments. To help regulate all this, make exercise part of your daily schedule. Nothing is more cleansing. A family hike, bike ride or jog each day in warmer climes—sledding, skiing or making a snowman, in colder climes—will do wonders to help keep things in balance.

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS!
 
As the mother of a son with autism, I’ve committed myself over the years to learning, understanding and sharing the most effective ways to nurture, protect and prepare a child with autism. Strategies with the potential to reap great rewards for our kids. Strategies for the holiday season and beyond, which I’ll gladly share with you.
And right now I’m offering speaking engagements to parent groups, educators, autism support groups, government agencies and community organizations.

TIP OF THE WEEK

Everybody Exercise!

Studies show that exercise decreases anxiety and depression while it increases memory, alertness, attention and motivation. Therefore, it’s a smart idea to schedule your child’s toughest subject right after PE each day.
