      Glad to see the New York Times underscore the difficulties for parents of children with autism during the COVID crisis.

      A consistent school schedule will cut down on arguing about schoolwork and fill a child’s day in a useful way. It is also emotionally reassuring for kids to have familiar routines. On a practical level, many children focus better when given a single task (start with math …) for a set amount of time (… from 8:30 to 9:15). A strong school plan may therefore create space for you to get your grown-up work done, too.

      How is scheduling working out in your homes?

      I saw this article. I am glad that people are building awareness of how hard this is for families of children with special needs.
