The Holiday Season is Around the Corner!
The winter holidays can be a difficult time for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. Challenges can arise from changes in routine, expectations of family and friends, and busy social interactions make unusual demands on everyone.
To make the best of this holiday season, we need to do some planning and preparation. In December, Community Connections will feature: A Family and Friend’s Guide to the Holiday Season! We will include tips and recommendations for: Parents, Grandparents, Siblings, and Friends.
This week, we invite you to share your experience with others. We would like to hear your questions or concerns and, for those who have learned from past holidays, we want to share recommendations you have for other families to help them prepare for this holiday season.
