I have a child with special needs who has difficulty coping with transitions and changes in routine. Our family has been struggling to help our child manage these challenges and we are turning to this forum for advice.
Our child has ADHD and struggles with sensory processing issues. Any time there is a change in routine, whether it’s a new activity, a different environment, or an unexpected event, our child can become extremely agitated and stressed out. This can lead to tantrums, meltdowns, and other disruptive behaviors.
We’ve tried a number of strategies to help our child cope with transitions and changes, but we haven’t found anything that consistently works. We’ve talked to teachers and therapists, but we’re always looking for additional advice and insights.
What tips and techniques have worked for you in helping your child with special needs manage transitions and changes in routine? We would be grateful for any advice, anecdotes, or experiences you can share.
