How does your child(ren) handle big changes? Like switching from their school schedule to summer schedule, or moving, or anything huge like that. Do you see instant behaviors or is it a delayed reaction?
Alex's last day of school is on the 6th. Right now he has four therapists and one of his therapists last day is today (I'm so sad to be losing her, she has been so great but her summer schedule doesn't work with Alex's), and his other therapist's last day is on the 5th (I'll be missing her too, she has been in my home every morning before school since Oct, but she is moving up in the company so I am happy for her). He will be keeping two of the four therapist he has so atleast they are not all changing. So in the next couple weeks I am expecting to see some horrid behaviors but hoping he handles them well. Preparing for the worse but hoping for the best!! He does better with change now than he used to but it is still a major challenge for him.
The biggest challenge I have is when to tell him. He does better when he knows that change is going to happen but it can also cause him to have anxiety so its hard to balance the two. We told him at the beginning of the week that his one therapist would be leaving when school was done, and we told him last night that his other therapists last day was today. He handled last night great, no tears or anything and he was happy that he would be able to write to her (she is going to be his pen pal to help him work on writting, which is his biggest challenge acedemically). But there are times where he doesn't process things right away so I wonder how tonight will go and how he will do in school today. How far of advanced notice do you give your child when change is going to happen? Does it seem to cause anxiety about the issue?

Jamesen just gets super grumpy and clingy when a change overwhelms him. He usually does ok as long as Marcus is there to guide him

Seamus gets horrible. He whines more, scream's more, tantrums more, etc. He's like hes not even on his medication with changes. I dread the 8th, but am also thankfull that the Montessori school that he does IBI at is letting him come to summer school for IBI this summer, so he'll get some similarity.
