Day 26: Taking the Morning Circle Outdoors with the Child with Special Needs

Day 26 Taking the Morning Circle Outdoors with the Child with Special NeedsThis is a post out of the “31 Days of Morning Circles for the Child with Special Needs”.  You can find the main page for this series here.

The morning circle can be easily adapted for different settings as long as you can position your child safely. When the weather permits, we take the morning circle outside. We follow the same daily structure outdoors so that the new setting isn’t distracting for my son.

Below are some ideas for the main activities part of the circle when you take the morning circle outside.

Sometimes, the morning circle takes place at our local park. I sit on a bench and my little guy in his adapted stroller.
