Summer holidays: resources to support families

The summer holiday can be a difficult time for families with autistic children.  Whether going away for some of the summer or staying at home, the change in routine can be a challenge. 

Here we have gathered together a number of articles offering advice on managing the challenges of the summer holidays which can be downloaded to give to parents and carers in preparation for the forthcoming break. The downloadable document covers:

  • Finding support services and leisure activities
  • Preparing a person with autism for change
  • Preparing for the holiday
  • Using visual supports
  • Sensory issues in the summer
  • Travelling
  • Transition
  • Personal stories
