Learning should not stop just because summer break begins. Studies have shown that individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (and other special needs too) need continued structure and reinforcement of the goals they were striving towards during the school year. Often teachers will send home packets of worksheets and handouts with ideas of how parent's can continue working on these goals during the summer break. In other cases the student may qualify for Extended School Year services during the summer to help prevent regression. In either case, it is always good for parents to have a plan in place at home for continued structure and ideas for fun and successful, meaningful activities during the summer.
Please take this opportunity to look over some of our previous blogs for some ideas:
