As the school year winds down, the anxiety is increasing. I don’t don’t mean my anxiety from knowing the kids will be home 24/7 either. The kids are actually very anxious for the end of the school year.
If you think about it, when we were kids, we became anxious for the end of the school year as well.
Imagine how much more challenging that anxiety and anticipation is for a child on the spectrum. If your kids are anything like mine, life is much more challenging as summer break approaches.
As an adult and parent, I now see the value of year round school. As a kid, I hated the idea but I can see the benefits of that schedule for my kids. Funny how time changes perspective.
How do your kids handle the close of the school year?
