For some children, all the new and exciting of the holidays can be more troublesome than joyous…a shift in daily structure, lots of social gatherings, new experiences and foods, sensory overload, and a general lack of routine. For many parents, the “merry and bright” feels more like arguments, power struggles, and throwing their hands up. Kick off the holiday season with this workshop to learn strategies to avoid common missteps, help your child manage, and help your family make this your best holiday season yet!
You'll learn how to:
Anticipate common struggles for children with rigid, anxious, or "sensory" traits during the holidays
Prevent and navigate common challenges for these children and their families
Travel with these children better
Navigate expectations and sticky situations with extended family members
Practical tools to take home and use!
This workshop is for you if...
Your child struggles (acts out, melts down, becomes lethargic, becomes anxious or worrisome) with changes in routine or during school breaks
Your child gets easily overwhelmed in new or "sensory" settings
You're ready for a happy holiday experience with your family!
