It’s the most wonderful time of the year… But you know that’s not always the case. For kiddos that thrive on routines, face behavioral challenges, get overwhelmed quickly, need special diets, and more, facing the holiday season can fill a special needs parent with dread.
(Secret: You are not alone!)
That’s why it’s so great that the internet is here to provide you with practical advice, help, humor, and hope for your upcoming holiday season.
This is a project that I began working on last year and it has finally come to fruition – after a few hours of work, crossed eyes, and realizing it’s 1PM and I’m still in my pajamas. Anyway….
This is both a blog post and an email campaign. My special needs email subscribers got an advance copy, which is arranged slightly differently and much more visually appealing. You can check it out here. If you are not a subscriber to my Encouragement for Special Needs Parents Newsletter, you can subscribe here! I thought about sticking with either one format or the other, but I wanted to make sure that this went out to as MANY families as possible. A blog post gives me great Pinterest coverage, but an email campaign is much more visually-oriented and, dare I say, pretty. I plan to update the blog post and this email campaign on an annual basis to provide the best special needs holiday guide to my readers that they can get their hands on.
If you are a special needs blogger who has posts that you feel would be a good addition to this guide, PLEASE send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will make sure that your content gets put on the blog and makes it into next year’s email.
All of these posts that have Pinterest-friendly graphics will also be pinned to my brand new Special Needs Holiday Survival Guide Pinterest Board.
I truly wish you a happy, healthy, and SANE holiday season – at least as sane as it CAN be, right?
‘All About: What Happens at Christmas Time’ book, is a detailed social story about the different aspects of Christmas. It was designed primarily for children on the Autism Spectrum and those with anxiety or short term memory challenges, to act as a guide to what to expect at Christmas time. The book aims to inform children about the changes in their lives at Christmas, etiquette and behaviour expectations, and to prepare them for things they might experience or come across at Christmas.
