We’ve all been there. The hussle and bussle of the holidays can often take a heavy toll on our loved ones with Autism, especially our kiddos on the Spectrum. Frankly, as parents or caregivers, it can take a toll on us as well.
If your child or loved one with Autism struggles with the holiday’s, what seems to be the source of their struggles? Things like noise, large crowds, anticipation, anxiety, excitement, frequent travel, changes to routine, lights, smells and sounds can be extremely overwhelming for those on the Autism Spectrum.
What if anything, have you found, tried or done, that seems to make the holiday’s easier for your kids or loved ones on the Spectrum? Have you had to make changes to your holiday plans?
I’d love to hear your experience, ideas and opinions on this subject. If you’re an adult Autistic, please, please, please feel free to share your insights, they’re greatly appreciated. ☺
