Having a fun--and safe--summer with children can be a bit overwhelming; there are so many things to consider, including water safety, traveling, and how to fill up those long hours during the day when they’re not in school. For parents of children on the autism spectrum, summer can be especially challenging in that there are some things you have to think about in a different way.
While every child is different and has their own unique needs, with a bit of planning and organization, summer can be relaxing and fun for you, too. The trick is to not let yourself get overwhelmed, and you can achieve this by making lists, communicating with family members about your plans, and taking care of yourself so that you’re rested and able to handle anything that comes your way.
