For kids on the autism spectrum, “winter can mean entirely different routines, environments, and supports.”

While changes in patterns can lead to frustration, blogger Anabelle Listic shares interventions and tools that can help. Her new post on the Squag™ Blog presents self-talk tactics and other tips, including:
  • Write down or draw out the good things.
  • Convey feelings through drawing, writing, talking, or any other expressive means.
  • Exercise.
  • Make goals.
Get details about how these actions and others can help kids and their families minimize difficult behavior, communicate effectively, and get through the winter months on a positive note. Check out “Supporting Your Child Through the Winter Blues.” 
Increase autism awareness by enhancing your interactions with individuals with autism spectrum disorders.
