Here is Day 1 of our Easter Survival Tips! We would like to remind you that every child is different and unique and responds to stimuli in different ways. Here is what worked for us!
Put down that Easter bonnet. The adorable smocking on that fancy Easter dress or the stiff dress shirt and tie might feel a little itchy to a typical child, but to a child with sensory issues who over-registers sensations, it could very well be unbearable. You might be able to compromise by letting her wear a favourite t-shirt underneath or letting him wear his Superman socks. But if not, you might just have to let it go. If you just can’t bear to let her wear her beloved sweatpants today, at least pick out an outfit that’s soft and comfortable. Make it special by choosing holiday colours or adding holiday accessories.
