Advent-the Season for the Celebration of the Nativity of Christ (Christmas): an Autism Guide, by Summer Kinard

Wikipedia: the Nativity of Christ

Summer Kinard, a mother of five autistic children and an Orthodox Christian, shares in this post her insights about making Christmas meaningful for children with autism. The topics she addresses are books, baking, Jesse Trees, Lighting, Singing, Cozy Spots and Away Places, Survival Kits, and Sleep. She writes about these approaches to the Nativity season in a remarkably personal and engaging way.  

She writes:

Autism is our normal. Though we adapt to help everyone thrive as much as possible, our priority is joy when it comes time to celebrate special seasons. I’m sharing these tips on how we embrace Advent as a family with autism, and you’ll probably appreciate this Advent Guide even if your family is neurotypical.
