It’s summer. And if you have a child on the spectrum, you already know what this means.

In our house, it means dealing with more attitude from z2. And not just the regular, typical, “tween attitude,” it’s the tween attitude plus autismx2. Z2’s behavior can be unpredictable. One day, he’s outside riding his bike and having fun. The very next day, he is yelling at me of why he is not going outside. Yup, same kid.

However, he found himself outside jumping on the trampoline. This is his way to release some stem and “self-regulate.”

Another way to get him to blow off stem is to do sensory activities. I put together a roundup of awesome sensory activities for kids with autism.

Actually, any kid will enjoy these sensory activities.

I wish these activities would be the magic pill to keep everything kosher this summer, but it’s not. We all know that. But hopefully, these ideas will help! Oh and wine. That’s for you, my friend!

Welcome! I love to read about the latest social media changes. A big fan of the latest gadgets and reading up on what's going in the tech world. I value family. When I'm not sharing my latest thoughts on Autism, Life with boys and creating a fancy tablescape, you can find me over at A Mitten Full Of Savings sharing ways to save money and frugal tips. I LOVE to travel, shop and spend time doing absolutely nothing. I drink wine like a fat kid loves cake. I have a very sarcastic personality, but I mean well... (most of the time)! Thanks for stopping by!
