In the Cusp Emergence neighborhood, most of the holiday decorations have been put away.
To the families who used the popular shelf elf concept during the holidays: have you put away your elf?
Many of the families we serve enjoyed using the elf and their children enjoyed it too.
Cusp Emergence loves hearing about ways families successfully involved special needs members in their holiday routines.
In our picture today, this family’s Elf has Autism, just like one of his family members!
And have you noticed? In terms of numbers, it’s pretty normal these days to have autism.
Or maybe “normal’s just a dryer setting”.
But however you think about it, it can be challenging to balance the needs of all family members with the support of a special needs child. How much? How often? When is it alright to let everyone do their own thing?
Tune into our next post, to learn how one family of five faced this challenge two years ago, and resolved to learn to include ALL family members in more supportive ways.
Did you make New Year’s Resolutions?
It’s not too late to commit to finding a new way to foster inclusion in your family.
