Elliott made it through the entire school day and that’s definitely a step in the right direction. That doesn’t mean that he had a good day though. All it means is that he wasn’t sent home because of a fever.
Emmett has lasted as well and the reason I even mention that is because he wore pants to school for the first time this year. That’s definitely a few steps forward.
Like with Elliott, I don’t know if Emmett had a good day.
I can very easily see Emmett crashing when he gets home because his pants have been driving him crazy all day.
It’s very common for kids on the Autism Spectrum to have awesome days at school but completely fall apart when they get home. They spend all day compensating and it’s takes all they have to simply make it through the school day.
When they get home from school, they can end up having a massive meltdown because they’re in sensory overload.
I’m hoping that isn’t the case today with either of the boys but it certainly wouldn’t be the first time it’s happened. I guess falling apart at home is better than falling apart at school.
