Summer is around the corner and my special needs son will be entering into the the 7th grade. I can’t believe how time has flown by and how tall he is getting as well. One thing for sure is that summertime is going to be LONG and I have no idea how I am going to occupy him, so that he remains engaged and ready for the world. I think that when my son was younger(Like too long ago), it seemed really easy to keep him occupied from day-to-day with play dates, meetup and all those types of mom clubs in between.
Unfortunately, around my neighborhood, most summers my son is at home on the computer playing games, reading a book, or watching TV. Don’t get me wrong, it is not that I haven’t tried other things to enroll him in and occupy his time. It is more along the lines of what types of programs are available to special needs children such as ours and that are not an arm and a leg.
Thankfully they have handy-dandy libraries where we can research various activities for special needs kids to keep them occupied over the long summer months. I checked this book out but you can also purchase it on Amazon for a reasonable price. It has definitely been my go to, when I have no clue what to do and the sun is beating down on my head.

I am not sure if they have a book for girls, but it can’t hurt to research it and find out. So when summer finally rolls around in your neck of the woods, remember me and this post, so you can become inspired for what to do, this is especially true for all parents of special needs children to.
