Tips for an Inclusive Fourth!

July 2, 2019

Happy 4th of July! For those of you that have children on the Autism Spectrum, the fireworks can be a bit tricky to navigate! If your child loves the fireworks, be sure to observe them at a safe distance as it is hard to understand why it is safe to touch fiberoptic lights in a sensory friendly space, but it isn’t safe to touch the bright sparklers and spinners. If you child is not a fan of fireworks, consider a few different options:

 

  1. Noise canceling headphones or headphones with music playing as a distractor

  2. Sunglasses to cut back on the brightness

  3. A comfortable blanket to wrap up in

  4. A short show (you can leave before the chaos!)

  5. A neighborhood show where you can “control” the types of fireworks being displayed

  6. Watching from the safety of an inside location

  7. Watching fireworks on TV from the comfort of your own home

  8. Skip the fireworks and create your own firework free family tradition

 

However you decide to celebrate, enjoy your time as a family!
