The festive season is here!!!
We have come to the end of yet another year. For some, the year might have been busy and successful, while others might have been chaotic and unsuccessful. Irrespective of how the year has been, each of us has a unique way of enjoying the holiday season. For some, it is a holiday away with your significant other, near the seashore, overlooking the breath-taking sunset. For some, it is to snuggle indoors with your little ones in pajamas, eating and playing all day. For some, it is a vacation in the wild or a hotel. For others, it is visiting Grandma or Grandpa in the urban/rural areas. As we contemplate and plan for our style of festivity, let’s remember to put the special needs child in the picture.
We all have a role to play in the lives of special needs children around us. They could be our immediate family, part of the extended family, our friends, or our family friends.
As the festivities continue, it is crucial to maintain the various household routines (sleep time, showering time, meal time, screen time, etc.). This is especially important for children having Autism Spectrum Disorder (A.S.D.) because routine gives these children a sense of security and helps them know what is coming.
