Today's Autism Tip

7. Establish a routine.


I would include this in any tips for raising kids - on the spectrum or not! Kids need routine - schedule and predictability. It adds security and understanding of "what comes next." You take a child with autism and this only will help things out! I posted here about our schedule. I love our schedule - our kids love our schedule and it really does help Zak too. On the days that we are not "on" schedule I can see a difference in Zak's behaviour.


Another valuable website that I would highly recommend is The Maxwell's.


"Let all things be done decently, and in order."

I'm a person of order. I like schedules. I've been a bit lax lately but there is comfort in knowing what is to come next!

Have a blessed Monday

Hi Martie. I'm here to apologize for not having the button placed on my site yet. Wordpress just changed a lot of procedures and things - and didn't bother to tell us just how to use them yet. I'm still trying to get it properly installed.
Best wishes,
Nancy
