Collection: Back to School

Moving to a different classroom, grade, or school can be stressful for any child; for those on the autism spectrum, handling anxiety about the unknown can be exceedingly difficult.  These fears can be reduced by taking small steps to familiarize your child to his or her new situation prior to the beginning of the school year. 

As long as you have the right special education tools, as earplugs or pencil grips, returning to school can be a rewarding experience for the whole family. Nobody knows your child’s unique learning style and needs better than you, and you can be confident that your child is receiving the level of care they deserve and require. Discover an abundance of autism back to school resources and products at Bright Autism.

For young children of preschool, kindergarten and early school age, fine motor skill development is extremely important. Read our blog: How to Choose the Right Pencil Grip

Is there a way to develop fine motor skills? Fine motor development is vital to your child’s confidence, self-care, and independence. Furthermore, increasing fine motor control enhances their play and prepares them for future success. Motor skills involve the specific movement of muscles to execute an intended task. Running, stringing beads, and sitting up are all activities involving motor skills. Different types of motor skills begin to develop as a child grows and gains muscle strength. Some children, like those with autism, have difficulty developing these skills.
