Hello world. So happy to see you joining us again on SEG Center. We pray that everyone is well and is in good health. In today’s blog I want to briefly speak on quarantine life or isolation or lockdown or whatever you want to call it. In this coronavirus pandemic that we find ourselves in we have all become accustomed to this new “normal”. Whether we want to admit it or not this new way of living is permanent for an unseen length of time. For some of us, quarantine life has been an easy transition. Where as for most of us quarantine life has been a dramatic shift in our family dynamics and in our day-to-day lives. When speaking with some of my respite mothers, I find that this new normal has significantly impacted our children, especially our autistic children. Autistic children tend to do very well with routine and when you pull them out of their normal routine, it can significantly impact their lives.
So what can we do as parents? Establish some sense of normalcy and some sense of a routine. I know that’s very difficult especially for working parents but it must be done in order to prevent regression. So leave a comment below and let us know what routine you have implemented in this quarantine life we find ourselves in. In this case like we teach our kiddos, sharing really is caring for the benefit of EVERYONE! I look forward to hearing from you.
Love you all,
