The holidays are upon us – Don’t panic!
The holidays are here!
If you’re like a lot of autistic folks, this is an extra challenging time of year.
Many of us would love to disappear into our “caves” and re-emerge after all the excitement is over. The crowds are overwhelming. The social demands are disconcerting. The sensory overwhelm is spiking.
It’s not an easy time to be extra-sensitive.
Auptima Press would like to help.
We’ve created a Living Well Holiday Survival Guide, designed to give folks on the autism spectrum the support and additional tools they need to handle the holidays in good form. Check out the guide – there’s an online “Stress Gauge” tool you can use to measure how the holidays may affect you, as well as a series of blog post featuring vignettes, discussions, and worksheets to let you know you’re not alone – and that there are things you can do to handle the holidays.
You can also share your own tips and tricks, as well as connect with others who want to discuss strategies and tools that work for them.
Check it out! Let us know what you think! We’d love to hear from you!
