Helping With Change of Routines

During this challenging time, your child may have some challenging behaviors because of the changes in routines or because they are feeling the adults’ anxieties. There are many strategies for supporting students through challenging behaviors, including:

  • Create a routine and a visual schedule to make your child’s day more predictable
  • Use timers to help your child understand the routine
  • Use a 5-point scale to help your child explain his/her emotions
  • Have a quiet space in your house for your child to de-escalate
  • Make time throughout the day for movement
  • Prepare your child for changes in routine ahead of time so s/he isn’t surprised
