Change is difficult, and it is especially difficult for children and adults with autism. The pandemic has introduced a number of challenges for our campers, many of whom thrive when routines are followed and expectations are clear. This added stress may also impact caregivers as they attempt to help their loved ones cope. Below are some resources that may provide useful information as you navigate the unique challenges experienced by people with autism and their caregivers.
