Congratulations to the Graduates!

Well, as the school year comes to a close one thing is always for certain; teachers are thankful and parents are frightened. "What on Earth am I going to do with him or her ALL DAY for 2 MONTHS?!"; the summer can be a long and difficult transition for any child, when consistency and routine are done away with.

There are many ways parents can help ease the stress, including talking openly and honestly about what happens during the summer months, including giving sufficient notice for major events like vacations, planned absences, major family gatherings  and so on.

Parents often forget how important consistency and sameness are to their spectrum children; in my perspective, your daily structure should not necessarily alter that drastically in the summer (from the academic year), but there should certainly be an obvious summer theme to all your child's learning and adventures. Plan activities for functionality and relevance to your child's interest to maximize his or her chance of having meaningful interaction with the materials; it seems obvious, but it is the small things that make all the difference. Summer is a time to relax, have some fun and play outside; but remember rules are rules, no matter the season!

It is not too late to join the first official graduating class of Magnificent Minds; visit us online or call us today to arrange a tour of the facility.
