I've finally nailed downa bedtime routine that doesn't need medications! Now I need an AM routine for school days. My little man (5, with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified and loads of other issues) gets up at 7 for his asthma medications. After medications is breakfast, bathroom stuff, diaper in trash, dressed, pack snack, check school bag. (he was done by 7:30) The bus doesn't come until 8:25, but I need time in case he has a meltdown. After he's done with everything and has earned marbles along the way, he can play the Wii. Everything was fine and dandy this morning, ran perfectly smooth...Until it was time to turn of the Wii and wait for the bus. That triggered a tantrum. He ended up going out without his coat (it's in his bag, not a battle I'm fighting!), and crying until he got on the bus. He was fine once he got on. I reminded him that if he turned off the Wii and went to wait for the bus that he would get his 5th marble for the morning and could pick from the prize box before school. I used a whole bunch of "if/when...then" directions, and nothing helped. I can't drive him because he's trying to get out of going to school, and I can't let him miss the bus and make him walk because it's too far in the cold. So once he's done getting dressed, what can he do until the bus comes? Maybe a set of transition activities? He has a DS but that gets him from the driveway to the bus because he sits with a kid who is really good at a certain game.
