Kids on the Autism Spectrum are creatures of habit that typically don’t do well with change. My kids are no exception.
When it comes to starting back at school, I’ve found that if we begin practicing our back to school routine a head of time, it sorta smooths out the transition a little bit.
My kids go back to school on September 1st and so I’ve begun practicing bedtimes and wake up times with the boys.
I’ve set their bedtime for 9pm and wake up time for 7:15am.
My goal is to give them a little bit of time to adjust to everything before they have no choice.
I’m getting excited because in about two weeks, I’ll finally be somewhat of a break during the day. I’ll still have Gavin but that’s okay. 😀
