Follow a Routine
Kids with autism thrive when they follow a routine. It gives them a sense of security. My family is always better when we stick to a schedule. However, life happens, and sometimes we have to add a family party, sporting event, play date, or trip to the store to our to-do list. It's usually at these times when we'll see a change in my sons behavior. Doing things that are out of his comfort zone are scary. When the risks outweigh the benefits, we stay home.
