We know and understand that Thanksgiving, like many holidays, can throw a child with autism into sensory overload. The constant hustle-bustle of the day can be hard on anyone, but for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and their parents, stress levels can be particularly high. Following are a few tips to help ease you through the day.

  • Keep your child’s needs in mind when planning your day: Meeting people or having large family get togethers can be hard for your child. Think about alternatives or at least spending a portion of the day with quiet activities.

  • Make sure there is food your child will eat: Thanksgiving feasts can be hard for children who have sensitivities to certain foods. Thus, bring along your child’s favorite foods.

  • Make sure your child has a get-away space: Your child should have a room he can go to if he feels overwhelmed, whether it be in your own house or your relative’s house.

  • Provide a schedule for your child: Talk through the general time line with your child – guests and relatives arriving, what time food will be served, etc. Explain any changes in routine ahead of time.

  • When entertaining in your home, keep changes to décor to a minimum: Rearrange furniture only if needed and use a few holiday decorations.
