Autism and Holidays

Are holidays stressful at your house?? Does your autistic/special needs child even understand about time frames of holidays??

TC thought as soon as Thanksgiving was over, it was time for Christmas. He immediately wanted to open presents. I have tried to show him on the calendar and I "think" he understands.

Next week is his last week at school until the new year. Once it is time to go back we will have to deal with the mother of all meltdowns...just like we did after Thanksgiving.

Lord help me.
