Upcoming Holiday Post

So, I was thinking (frightening, no?) about my upcoming “Holidays As the Autism Family” post (title TBD). I have things I know I will cover, but I wondered if anyone had questions particular to them that I could, perhaps, address? If I don’t know an answer, I will endeavor to inquire diligently!

If you are part of a family who lives with Autism on a daily basis and are stressing out about the holiday season, stay tuned. The holidays are a time of joy and of family and this holds true for those of us who make special accommodations for loved ones, too. 🙂

    Good question, Sandi! I think in our family we’re blessed. Much of my child’s anticipation is for the holiday season. So there’s always laughter and things to do to keep them out of trouble. I know in case, I find it awesome enjoying time watching movies and playing games with my kids. It’s the best time of the year where we’re all together for a two-week period without a care in the world other than enjoying each other’s company. We do have challenges, but the benefits far outweigh the negatives for the season!

      Hey, Jack!

      That is so cool. 🙂 Sounds like you have such a cozy time of it! 🙂 What a blessing. 🙂

    My daughter likes to know everything about where we are going, where we are staying, what we will eat, all before we go. We have taken to printing reams of bedroom plans, tourist sites and of course the plans for the week including the rainy option!
    My son on the other hand, (he is not ASD but has severe dyspraxia and Sensory integration dysfunction), asks us every morning if it’s time to go home yet.
    Regardless of their worries, and the extras that holidaying with 2 special kids incurs, a good time is always had by all, and they get to see and experience new things in this cool world!

      Your daughter sounds a lot like my younger son. 🙂

      And…so does your son! It’s great that you have your contingencies set up and all. You are a Parent With Experience. 🙂
