Your home is where you spend most of your time and you want it to be a place of relaxation and comfort. The decor and design of your house contribute to your mood and can actually help relieve stress and anxiety when it’s done correctly. That’s why it’s so important for your home to be a safe, comfortable environment for your loved one on the autism spectrum.

There are many different degrees of autism, which makes every family’s situation unique. Only you know what’s best for your child, so think about what her needs are and how your home can be transformed to meet those needs. It maybe something as simple as the lighting or flooring, or something as complex as working on reducing the amount of stress in your home or building up your child’s self-esteem. Think about the best ways to make things easier for your child to feel comfortable and relaxed. Here are some tips to get you started.

Listen, look, feel

Many individuals on the autism spectrum are very sensitive to noise, texture, and light, so it’s important to find ways to minimize these things, especially when you want your child’s attention or when you want to reduce distraction. The sound of the dishwasher, washing machine, clocks ticking, television, or radio can all interfere with your loved one’s ability to concentrate or interact, as can certain fabrics or colors. Your home should be a place where your child feels comfortable, so pay close attention to all things sensory-related. If you’d like to read more about how to create the best environment for your child, check out this article.

Make her/his room special

Your child’s bedroom should be a place where she can go when she feels overwhelmed, so paint the walls in a color that soothes her and refrain from over-decorating. In many instances, people on the autism spectrum are very sensitive to visual stimuli and can have trouble maintaining eye contact when there’s too much going on. For more tips on how to make your child’s room a place of calm and relaxation, go to Redfin.com.

Try different lighting

Some individuals on the spectrum are more comfortable in a room with dim lighting, while others prefer incandescent lighting. Try different kinds to see which ones your child is more comfortable with, and don’t forget about natural light. Sometimes, colored string lights are effective and can help someone on the spectrum feel safe and calm.

Child-proof your home

If you find yourself saying “No” to your child often, it may be time to take a look at the way your home is decorated and furnished. Plants, cabinets, drawers, remotes, and doors are all interesting things for children on the spectrum, and they will either react to your reaction--meaning they’ll keep repeating their behavior to see what you do--or they will be less interactive. Go through your home and make sure it’s a safe place for your child to explore without negative feedback from you.

Practice self-care

Raising a child with special needs can be overwhelming and exhausting, and while it’s okay to feel stressed and tired now and then, it’s important to do what you can to reduce those feelings and keep your home a haven of positivity. Not only will this help you get through the rough days, it will allow your child to feel safe, supported, and loved at all times.

Remember that every family is different; find what works for you and your child. Think about creating a space that will maintain order and calm and will help your child feel safe at all times and don’t forget to have fun!
