Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. But it also presents some challenges for autistic adults and children. Christmas shopping can cause overload. Christmas food can present challenges due to dietary requirements, and sensory sensitivities. Even opening presents can be tricky if you’re not good with new things. So I made this autism Christmas video.
Sharing tips and tricks that I’ve picked up over the years, to help to make your Christmas more autism friendly.
In this video I’m covering;
- Christmas shopping
- Festive food choices
- Christmas presents
- The extra social demands of Christmas
I hope you find my video useful. Have a very merry Christmas 🎄
