Great Back-to-School Strategies
What's in this issue?
So, are you ready? Does your child’s back-to-school checklist seem incredibly long this year? New clothes, backpack, lunchbox, water bottle, 3-ring binders, planner…the list seems to go on and on. And when a child is on the autism spectrum, this checklist can seem overwhelming with additional responsibilities. Your child will need the tools to transition to a new environment with potentially different rules and expectations. You will need focus on coordinating appropriate education plans, make sure they are followed, and schedule therapies. Then there are social skills and verbal skills to be strengthened…where do you begin? Please don’t stress—we understand the challenges families face every day and have put together an issue packed with the tools to assist you and your child in making a smooth transition.
