Thanksgiving is tomorrow and this tip fits Thanksgiving or any family gathering. I've learned these things bt fumbling along in the dark. At a family gathering in Turkey I 𝐟𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐞𝐝 my son by not realizing that he needed a space to take a break and be in quiet. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Often times when I visit family and friends for big gatherings like this I advocate for my son. I know he will feel comfortable at his grandparents house since that's a familiar place for him.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⭕ My first tip for a family gathering is to ask to keep that gathering at a familiar place like your own home, the grandparents, familiar friend or family members home etc. I've expressed that it just makes it easier for my child to step away when he needs to. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⭕ Dress in comfortable clothes and bring a change of clothing if it is necessary to be dressed for pictures or dinner. This is a no brainer and a lesson I learned really hard. My son likes to wear sweats and be comfortable. My family in Turkey...well they love dressing nicely and I know for another trip there I'll make sure to find fabrics that are "dressed" looking or just bring him in clothes he is comfortable in and forget the rest. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⭕ Bring food that you know your child will eat! My son won't eat meat. In this regard I'll now bring something he will eat. If your child only eats chicken nuggets and fries 𝐁𝐑𝐈𝐍𝐆 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐂𝐇𝐈𝐂𝐊𝐄𝐍 𝐍𝐔𝐆𝐆𝐄𝐓𝐒 𝐀𝐍𝐃 𝐅𝐑𝐈𝐄𝐒!⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

Halloween PSA from my kids.
Have a great weekend!

Hi my lovelies. So sorry I haven't been on top of messages etc...

We have been having the best time in the new forest! Thought I would share some of our pics with you all.

We completely lucked out and they opened on the day we have booked for. If we had booked it a day earlier, it would have been cancelled.

Kids had the best time and I actually remembered to pack a bra this year, which I forgot for our last holiday! 🤣🤣🤣 And of course I remembered to take the most important thing, the wine!!!

Back to reality now and I will catch up on all my messages.

Xxx

Oh yay 😁
#summerholidaybooked for me and all 3 offspring.

Couldn’t do it without parental generous gifting and provision of accommodation 😅 T’s third holiday in Porto Cristo so he knows just what to expect. Tui special assistance have given us perfect seating arrangements and Norwich airport let us on the plane before the flight was called last year and whizzed us through queues like a bunch of VIPs so 🤞🏼for the same..... and let’s hope the frozen yogurt shop/favourite calamari cafe are both still there too 😆

What an amazing lunch @wisewine in Eagle Bay 😍 the views were breath taking, the wine was incredible and the food was mouth watering.


Such a gorgeous venue. It is family friendly and the staff were so professional and welcoming. The perfect lunch spot for my trip down south.
I had Abi with me and the large grassed area was perfect for her to have movement breaks between sitting to eat. She could run and run. So family friendly as well as mum friendly 😉

Happy Holidays 🎉 Merry Christmas 🎄 Pray for us 🤦🏼‍♀️🙏🏻 #theyarncloset #ASDmom #asdholidays #greatkid

I'm going to tell you what I'm thankful for..... I'm thankful for my son's ability to poetically express his feelings.....

He had an assignment to create a podcast and this is what he came up with... So yeah he looks relatively normal but just an eye opener to everyone that looks aren't always what they seem. While I absolutely love Thanksgiving this opened my eyes a whole bunch this morning. So just be aware that other people think differently than you do. This really touched my heart because there's a huge percentage of spectrum kiddos that could never tell somebody how they felt about a holiday and the stress that goes along with it. So when we struggle with little things I'm going to remember this and be grateful.

An #autismcommunity hit for the families of our younger members.

Even when you forget your nice looking #tealpumpkinproject sign at home!
#autismsocietynebraskaomaha was so thankful to the #UNO #servicelearningacademy students who put together just a few of the activity stations in the second picture. They help bring new ideas and fresh perspectives every year. ❤

Holidays - how do you guys tackle them? Alex has been to Spain 3 times, he has always been fine with air travel and has never seemed too thrown by the change in environment.

This year, we decided to try something different and are taking him to Disneyland Paris! He LOVES Mickey and all the clubhouse characters and is mad about the Lion King, so we’re hoping he’ll love it!
I’m a bit concerned it might be too full on for him and he could get overstimulated, but we’ll be taking it easy with lots of breaks and plenty of chill time at our cabin in Davy Crocketts Ranch.
Have any of you guys taken your kids to Disney? How did you find it? Any advice or tips would be really appreciated, as always! 💙

Time to start gathering information to make Freds holiday pack so that he can visualise how we get there and what to expect.

This helps lowers his anxiety and we put tick boxes in so that he can tick it off when we get there. We did this last year and it made the trip so much easier for him (and all of us!)

This guy was so excited when he realised we were getting back on the plane to come home.

Jumped straight in his seat and got himself settled. Been so proud of him this whole trip, and so grateful to the staff onboard @emirates for the extra support and care they provided to make our flights so easy and enjoyable (except the bit where i watched a star is born and cried so hard that they had to check was i ok 🙈) #autism #asdholidays #emirates

Rex convinced me at dinner that trying new types of baklava counted towards the holiday 'try new things' dinner challenge.

We established he loves baklava by the time he was four. However, as I was trying the new red wine as my dinner challenge effort I didn't really feel in a position to argue 😂 #trynewfoods #goodtiming #sneakyboy #baklava #persuasiveskills

Well this half term was much better than the last holiday, we’ve had an awesome time, Oscar went to

visit his grandma, so it was just me and the angel face for a few days, then I got Oscar and mummy time today as he’s not back till tommorow, we even snuck in a couple of Biffy walks 🤣😍 Here’s a few little snapshots of our week! 😊✨ #halftermloveliness #asdholidays #asdfamily #lotsoflovelywalksandsnuggles💕 xxx

Why would we think to try parasailing with Brodie

Because we have given him the opportunity to try new things to learn what he enjoys doing
We’ve given him experiences so he can decide if he likes it or not.
How do we know he liked parasailing?
Because as it was coming down he signed and said “more”
And later when on the banana boat he pointed at the parasailing boat and said “sail” “more”
And he parasailed again! #parasailing #autism #asd #asdholidays #autismfamilyholiday #nolimits #bali #lovethiskid #excitment #adventuresaroundeverycorner #lifeisanadventure

“Brodie won’t wear tags on his arm is it ok if his Mum wears two?”
“Let’s just try him”

2 hours at Bali swing wearing the wrist bands! The little things in amongst all the big things! #autism #littlethingsmatter #bigachievements #autismfamilyholiday #autism #excitment #asd #asdholidays #lovethiskid #baliswing #bali
