You’ll want to make some considerations indoors as well for the comfort of your family and your autistic child. Make sure to find a house that allows for your child to have their own bedroom so they can have their own space to collect their thoughts and be alone when they need it.
It’s a good idea to ensure that the living/dining room area is large enough so that your autistic child can play about, if they choose, without the worry of tripping, falling, or otherwise knocking into an item. You will want to keep the house clean and organized because in some cases, children on the autistic spectrum can be thrown off and upset by unnecessary clutter or disorganization which can come in the form of a pile of stuff in the corner to an unsightly stain on a chair.
It is very important to create a safe and calming space for your child to calm down when her/ she feels overwhelmed. This space can be a small corner in their bedroom with limited furniture (for example a bean bag or hugging peapod) and consisting of sensory toys (popits, fidget sets etc).
