After months of summer fun and laid-back routines, our children are expected to jump right into morning, school, and evening routines. These routines may include increased independence, riding the bus for the first time, or entering a new school altogether. Working together to create a schedule, sensory diet, and clear expectations can help alleviate stress by preparing your child for the transition from summer vacation to school schedule.
Although birthday parties can be a great event, they can be overwhelming for everyone involved. They’re loud, crowded, and can be a huge change in routine for kids. Success within birthday party environments involve creating a plan, or two, that incorporates heavy work, deep pressure, and calming strategies. Knowing your child and what sensory integration they need before, during, and after an event can help build the confidence your child needs to successfully participate in birthday parties.
