Coping with ASD at Christmas

Decorations, busy schedules and a change in routine have two things in common, they all help form Christmas and they all contribute to making things more difficult for those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Specialist schools such as Wolfdale School, based in Leicester, work towards making Christmas as easy and comfortable as it can be. Using methods such as involving the children in decorating and knowing how each child copes helps to make the festive period more manageable.

Gemma Budzik, Director at Wolfdale School, explains how children with ASD are affected and how we can make it easier for them.
