Our students have different sensory needs. We are mindful of this as we continue to improve and adapt both in and outside the classroom. We can't think of a better way to address some of these needs while navigating the hot summer months than enjoying some refreshing watermelon, playground time in the morning, or the soothing feeling of a pool of water.
We hope you are enjoying your summer! Often times, summer is a time that children look forward to a break from school, no strict schedule, no classes, no homework. However, for children on the Autism Spectrum, these changes can create new stressors.
Below are some tips to help with the adjustment to summer:
☑ Plan and discuss ahead of time
☑ Consider a daily schedule
☑ Use timers/alarms
☑ Allow for extra time

We hope everyone is having a great Spring Break.
We miss our students and are looking forward to seeing all of them bright and early Monday morning. Have a great weekend and see you soon.
With Spring Break upon us, we wanted to provide our families with some tips during the break for a successful return to school.
-Keep the same sleeping/ wake up time during the week to keep a consistent schedule for your student.
-Take this time to work on life skills such as participating in daily chores, and practicing self-care skills (hygiene, grooming, and meal prep activities).
-Keep the Visual schedule of your child's routine where he/she spends most of their time, for them to see what is coming next. This will help with reducing meltdowns.
-Practice reinforcing good behavior at home (using the restroom by themselves, hand-washing, doing non-preferred activities for at least 2-minutes a day).
-For student academics: Make sure they spend some time on reading, writing and math. At least 30 minutes in total/day. So they are in touch with their goals when they come back.
-Create opportunities for them to communicate with you. Make them talk, ask questions or respond to you in full sentences or use communication devices...if available.
-Keep the rewards /consequences consistent.
From all of us at The Children's Center, have a joyful Spring Break.
"Some of The Children's Center's best qualities, are its commitment to its students, teachers and staff and robust resources for its classrooms ensuring student success." -Michael Riehle, Special Education Teacher
