MAKING A SCHEDULE FOR A CHILD WITH SPD
A few weeks ago we went through more than 2 weeks of constant meltdowns. Why? My son’s schedule changed. The point is…this forced me to make a schedule for my son for the first time, which you can read about here.
When I say make a schedule, I don’t mean a routine. I mean put it in writing, make it visible to your child. We have been following basically the same routine for months now. And because of this I guess that is why I never actually thought it was important to make a schedule, to put it in writing and to make it visible for my son. But let me say that after deciding to do this, I have seen a remarkable difference in more than one way.
