Fun Summer Activities for Autistic Children


2019 Fun Summer Activities for Autistic Children

Congratulations. You’ve made it through another school year! Let the summer fun begin. PediaPlex understands that summer break can be challenging for kiddos on the autism spectrum as breaking away from their routine and pace can sometimes trigger behavioral changes. The DFW metroplex is offering many sensory-friendly ways this summer to help keep our ASD kiddos active. Here are a few fun summer activities for autistic children in the month of June:
