Going to the fireworks for the 4th of July celebration is sometimes difficult for people on the spectrum.

Going to the fireworks for the 4th of July celebration is sometimes difficult for people on the spectrum. Loud noises, crowds… it can be a lot to handle. Be prepared for all of the excitement with a few of these tips:

1. Prepare your child in advance by talking about what to expect.

2. Bring familiar toys and snacks as a distraction if you should need it.

3. Have a blanket or chair for them that acts as their own “personal space”.

4. Headphones that help muffle the noise.

5. Have a quiet place picked out just in case your child needs a break.
