Message length 300 characters recommended

For a homeschooled autistic child, there are some considerations to keep in mind when planning a field trip. I'm not saying limit your options necessarily... autistic people are still people and perfectly capable ones at that, but being considerate is a generally accepted standard, I think, that involves really knowing someone... their fears, joys, annoyances, and comfort zone. So, for the best learning experience for the child... listen to them!!

And,.one last thing, have the parameters- rules, stops, intentions, all of it... spelled out very clearly and distinctly before going on the trip. Don't plan so much you can't complete all the activities. I think most autistic people can agree that changing plans are INFURIATING and can break a whole trip.

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
