It’s time again for pumpkin spice and sweaters. With the holidays coming up things can become stressful and hectic for both you and your kids.aaa-6Take this time to get out of the house, enjoy the cooler weather while spending some quality time with one another. There are so many activities that the family can do during this time of the year. We live in an area that has activities that can be appealing to all different ends of the spectrum.

fall1    Many outings can seem daunting because of large crowds but these events can be completely doable! Here at the Helm we want you and your child to succeed in the community. We will help find an appropriate community outing and give you helpful tips and tricks in order to make the outing go as smoothly as possible. Some great things to keep in mind would be try and go to an event in the morning to avoid crowds, make trips shorter, and plan breaks in a quiet spot to avoid fatigue. The biggest tip I can ever give you is to utilize your therapists! We can coordinate with you to attend the outing and help problem solve and give future guidance to help them excel.
