Today is the day we put up our sensory friendly Christmas tree. We use an artificial tree that doesn‘t have the smell of pine, which I happen to really like, but the rest of my family doesn‘t.
We have also moved to plane white lights. Gone are the flashing, chasing or strobe lights.
Bright, Shiney, and noisy ornaments have gone extinct in our house as well. Homemade paper ornaments are all you’ll find on our Christmas tree.
While it may not be as bright and festive as most others, it’s also not going to push my kids and wife over the edge and into an overstimulated free fall.
As far as decorating around the house, we keep things very simple.
In a family with 4 people on the #Autism spectrum, most often times we find that lees is more.
