A lot of people will be going on summer vacation soon. If you look up the word "vacation" in a dictionary, it means having fun and relaxing away from home. When adults have time off from work, they use it to relax and recharge their bodies. However, kids also require vacations to rest and grow.
Research shows that family vacations are good for your health. They break your family out of their normal routine, open your minds to fresh cultures and foods, and make you more open-minded.
Summer break gives students with behavioral or intellectual disabilities a chance to work through any "walls" they might have built up because of too much school work. Some kids with special needs find the work and atmosphere in classrooms stressful, so a summer break gives them a chance to relax and think about the learning experience they had. This helps them be ready for the start of a new school year in the fall.
As well as being able to relax, summer break gives you unique chances to learn and improve your social skills. During family vacations, at the park, and at other places where kids can freely and naturally interact with each other, they can learn new things and grow as people. In a structured classroom, this opportunity can help them learn about social cues in a way that isn't always the same as what happens in real life.
Parents who want to give their child social and educational opportunities over the summer can ask teachers or therapists for ideas. They can also look for fun summer activities and exercises on their own. In the fall, it can be easier to go back to school if you keep up with an educational routine, which can be stable.
