Another idea from You’re Welcome by Paula Kluth and Patrick Schwarz
Whether you support young children or adults, introducing deep breathing exercises to curb stress and deal with struggles like transitions and schedule changes can be a life saver. Begin by teaching the individual the exercises and then follow up by sharing videos or step-by-step checklists to reinforce the new skill.
You can find a social narrative here (from a book by Beverly Vicker) on using deep breathing with young adults.
