Parents Letter - Strep A Public Health England Update



Managing the Christmas Sensory Overload


From the Beacon House Therapeutic Services and Trauma Team:


"It's that time of year which for some of us is exciting: meeting and catching up with friends and family, putting up glittery decorations and sparkly lights, giving and receiving shiny gifts, parties, dressing up, singing songs and watching TV specials!


Yet for many children, young people and adults, this time of year can be filled with emotional and sensory overwhelm. An increase in noise, multiple voices, crowds, social expectations, changes in routine, flashing lights, different textures brought into the house, loud and busy music and surprise gifts. So, what can we do to ensure a more joyful, or tolerable time for ALL the family?"
