AutismBC Talks: Keeping Routine and Structure During School Breaks
June 16 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
AutismBC is pleased to collaborate with Provincial Outreach Program for Autism and Related Disorders (POPARD) to present a series of workshops in 2023. This Talk Keeping Routine and Structure During School Breaks aims to address the common challenges that autistic children and youth face when transitioning to summer break. We will delve into the specific difficulties they may encounter and explore effective strategies to help them navigate these transitions with greater ease.
As the current school year draws to a close, many parents and caregivers are beginning to consider the upcoming summer break. While summer break is typically associated with fun and family activities, it can also bring about increased stress for autistic children and their caregivers due to changes in routine.
This session will:
- Review common challenges with transitions for autistic children/youth.
- Provide preparation strategies and ideas for keeping structure and routine at home over summer break.
- Offer resources, activities, and camps that can be helpful for families to explore for their children.
