Suggestion #15: Ask the parent bring in a change of comfortable clothes.
Many autistic children have heightened sensitivity. If they spill a glass of water on their shirt, it may be nearly impossible for them to ignore the water. A child that is uncomfortable will have a difficult time studying or learning, it will be hard for them to focus on their work. Let them know that you have a comfortable change of clothes available for them, that they can change into at any time. Therefore, if a shirt is scratchy, they can change right away rather than trying to wait until they are home. I would recommend this, no matter the age of the child.
