Are you looking forward to celebrating the holidays—or are you getting anxious? From bright lights and large crowds to loud noises and strong smells, the holidays can be overwhelming for a child with autism. If you could tell your friends and family what your child needed to be comfortable during the holiday season, what would you say? This month our writers have provided guidance on ways to help manage holiday gatherings, simple ways to help picky eaters, plus ways to take care of YOU, the loving carer. We also focus on key topics such as employment, screen time, apraxia, and special needs rights. Take a look —we’re here for you!
