Smooth Transitions – Helping your Family through Daily Routines: Grow Education Series

09 Mar, 2022

Grow Education Series

Many children, youth, and adults with disabilities have a hard time moving through daily activities and tasks. Sometimes, when parents and caregivers try to transition to the next item on the schedule, they are met with passive resistance such as ignoring or with active resistance such as tantrums. Both scenarios pose different challenges and can be very frustrating to manage in the moment. 

 In this presentation, we will be reviewing why challenges with routines and transitions happen, tips to neutralize these challenging parts of the day, and responses to use when passive or active resistance happens. We hope to provide some ideas to support you and your family members get through your daily routines.
