First Day of School Nerves


Joined: 2016-03-03 Posts: 6

Today is Brody’s first day of school - although he is only in until 12 this week.
He’s completely non verbal and doesn’t completely understand what is happening.
Any advice on how to make the transition easier?

I wish I had good advice.  I’m probably not much help since I homeschool - but when we were trying to transition my son to a school setting - we used something called a social story book with pictures so he’d know what to expect in a day from start to finish and I think that helped a little.  For him ultimately we had to homeschool due to him being so medically fragile and him having difficulties sensory wise around other children.
