A Tip for Parents - Working through transitions


Chase glasses

Does your child have difficulties with transitions? Try singing through it! Use a familiar song with new words…... 

(To the tune of" Wheels on the Bus”)

The toys in the room get put away,

Put away,

Put away,

The toys in the room get put away,

So we can go to bed…..”

This technique has been a huge help for my son, who has a processing disorder that causes him to have trouble transitioning from one activity to the next. This technique is a fun, engaging way to help him mentally prepare for whatever comes next. Sometimes, I sing the whole day through and the days goes by more peacefully for both of us!
