Change in routine…

This is Courtney a few minutes after getting off the bus. Though calming down at this point she was still visibly very upset. It started as soon as the bus pulled up to our driveway. The bus driver immediately said I’ve never seen her like this and have no idea why it started. I knew why. I got her off the bus today. Change in routine. This bus driver is new so he has not seen this happen but the few times I have been home to get her off the bus she has started screaming as soon as she sees me in the driveway. Most children would probably be happy to see their mom actually home to get them off the bus. But this is autism. Change in such an important part of her routine sets her off. Fortunately the meltdown doesn’t last long.
