Back to School for Children with Autism
It's almost back-to-school time and with that comes challenges for students with autism as their routines change again. With some preparation, the transition will hopefully be a little smoother. We share some resources with you with information and tips on how to navigate this time of year.
Sensory Processing Issues and Back-to-School
Now is a good time for parents to give though to strategies for children with sensory processing issues and their return to school. From clothing and supplies to new routines, it's a good time to start to prepare children for this adjustment gradually. Some resources are below:
New School Routines Start Now
One of the best ways to help your child get ready for the return to school is to start now. Little by little, you can modify routines, have conversations, and develop a plan. This helps make the transition from the pool or park to the classroom easier for you and your child. Adjusting bedtimes, talking about the upcoming year and activities to come, and planning together with your child are some ways to smooth the change.
