5. Harsh Weather Tips

Kids with learning disabilities need more care and guidance to dress for harsh weather, depending on their coping skills and special needs.

With bad weather, make a game of getting all the necessary clothing and equipment together in one place.

I installed hooks along the wall at a height the kids could reach with a bench below to sit on to remove boots. As the clothes dryer was in the garage that's where wet gloves, hats and scarves would tumble for a few minutes to dry. The garage was serving as a mud room.

Whatever works best for your kids is okay and the routine to be practiced, especially with your kids that may need help dressing, undressing or remembering what to wear in wet weather.

The weekend is a good time to go through the routine of putting on coats without having the stress of having to get ready by a certain time to be at school or catch the school bus. In summary, make a game out of dressing for the wet weather, so you kids know ahead of time why their routine is changing.
