Tips to Keep Some Fun in Your Child's Life

Posted: Wednesday, January 12, 2011 - 10:45


Susan Walton, whose son has autism, was determined to keep fun in the family checklist of things to do. She recently completed a book, Coloring Outside Autism’s Lines: 50+ Activities, Adventures and Celebrations for Families of Children with Autism. She explains that many families get caught up with therapy, doctor’s appointments, nutrition, and caregiving and forget that everyone needs a break to have fun as well.

One of her suggestions is to call ahead to family destinations to see if they have special passes or areas for your children with special needs. She suggests contacting local pools, gyms, and other businesses about holding a special needs event. She also provides a national chain list of gluten-free and casein-free restaurants.
