Ah, the winter holidays…songs tell us it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but in many cases, it’s the most stressful. Just when our kids are finally settled in their school routine, they get up to two weeks off. Often during this time people travel, visit family and have company. All of these wonderful events represent change and transition for our kids. Even the decorations, lights, and carols can be overwhelming, both because of sensory considerations and because they are different.
