Safe Summer Fun
Summer is in full swing now and the temperatures are rising to eighty, ninety, and even one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. In these warm temperatures, many of us prefer to perform a lot of fun activities outdoors. These warm temperatures also bring a certain danger: dehydration. While having fun outdoors, is very important to drink enough water. Individuals on the spectrum, particularly those who are nonverbal, might not be able to communicate effectively that they are starting to feel bad. My message to parents is to make sure your children are drinking enough water. Most especially, I advise that you observe your autistic children to identify the signs of dehydration or worse issues, if necessary. I hope you all have a fun and safe summer and make sure that you stay safe and drink enough water.
