People all over the Northern Hemisphere are getting excited about getting ready for summer. Whether your family enjoys the beach, cookouts, ball games, or barbecues, you are certainly ready to ditch Old Man Winter and enjoy some summer fun.
For a child with ASD, though, summers can be a challenge. With their need for consistent schedules and routines, some summer activities may present difficulties. Kids with sensory issues may have a tough time with the bright sun and with loud music at the beach. Others may have difficulties adjusting to new surroundings while they are on vacation.
For kids with sensory issues, summer heat, bug bites, and poison ivy can be doubly annoying. Make sure that your kids get plenty of water and that they come inside the house when they feel sticky and hot. Encourage them to take showers or jump into the pool when they feel sweaty. Make sure that your children use sunscreen and bug spray properly. Have plenty of medications to take care of bee stings and poison ivy exposure. If you can be proactive in dealing with summer’s minor annoyances, your kids will be more comfortable and less likely to exhibit inappropriate behavior.
