Christmas and all that goes with it can be overwhelming for children with SEND, particularly those children who don't deal well with changes and also those with sensory difficulties. It can be difficult to find a balance between enjoying celebrations and keeping family life on an even keel. Here's some tips that may help:
Being off school and out of routine can be difficult. Try keeping bed times and meal times as close to "normal" as possible, so your child still has the security of their familiar daily routine
Spread out visitors so there aren't too many people around at once. You know what your child can handle so do what works for you and try not to feel pressured by what others want
If things are going to be different, prepare your child and explain what's going to happen in a way they understand. Maybe use photos of friends or family members as a visual preparation for visitors coming
The main thing to remember is you know your child and what works for them, so stick with it and enjoy!
