Hopefully, the sun is shining, and the sky is blue. A perfect opportunity to get your children outside to explore the nature around them. But is it overwhelming for your sensory child? Therefore the team have put together some on the go calming ideas for the summer period to help you enjoy the six week break.
Did you know that outdoor play helps to encourage a child’s intellectual, social, emotional and physical development? However, with a sensory child, when experiencing the outdoors, you may find they struggle with some sights, scents, textures and sounds.
One of the most important aspects of dealing with the summer period is to try and relax yourself. Children can sense moods around them and if you’re feeling stressed, they become instinctively aware and do the same. However, if you are relaxed and prepared you will then be able to remain calm if there are any problems arising. Hopefully your child will then react positively to your calm response too.
Remember – this holiday break is meant to be happy and relaxed. Enjoy it and just do the best you can.
