Neuroinclusive Christmas Planner for Kids

Christmas is almost upon us, and if your Autistic child is anything like the RA team’s Autistic kiddos, they may be starting to show signs of anxiety around the uncertainty of the holiday season. There are strange guests, strange foods, strange smells, surprise gifts, unsolicited hugs and kisses and – on top of this – a bearded old stranger promising to break into their house and leave a sack full of the unknown. It is little wonder they can struggle at this time!

So, in order to make this a really happy Christmas for everyone, our team have created a fun downloadable activity sheet for you to do with your child so, together, you can establish some certainties around Christmas they can count on. The activity sheet also includes a letter to Santa so your child can prepare for what might arrive in their stocking. They can complete the activity by writing or drawing their responses in the boxes and colouring in the characters.

So please download and print this to start the discussion that could ensure a neuroinclusive Christmas for your little people this year.

And finally, “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good (and comfortingly predictable) night!”
