People with autism are not always comfortable in social gatherings.
They can become nervous due to the prudence of many people, noises and lights.
This holiday season we bring to you some tips if you are expecting guests with autism.
Letting the person know beforehand about the gathering is important. People with autism are particular about their normal routines and setting.

Check with the caregiver, if the person is comfortable with social gestures such as hugging or kissing or handshakes. This will help avoid any stressful situation for the guest.
Also try and prepare a quiet spot in case the autistic guest needs a break and wants to sit in peace.
