An original sample of our autism camp postcard is for MJ to use to write to others while away at camp. Our loved one feels it is important to let us know whether he is feeling happy -- or not so happy at autism camp.
To make this task easier and fun, he would need to choose a pre-written postcard. And check the box next to a sentence to tell us how he is feeling on a particular day. He could then mail a postcard to family, friends and teachers. Each postcard we get from him at camp lets us know that he is well and thinking of us.
For a special touch try to create autism camp postcards based on a favorite interest or theme. MJ loves trains and roller coasters. We bought Amtrak postcards and antique cars postage stamps, which made writing to us much more fun for him.
Use our sample to create a postcard individualized for your child. The postcard can be helpful to communicate feelings, recall events, and to remind a camper of ways to cope with homesickness or other concerns. Picture icons can also be used alone or along with written words.
Autism Camp Postcard Sample
Here is a pre-written autism camp postcard that we made based on MJ's wishes and concerns:
__ Camp is okay. I'm doing just fine.
__ Hi! How is everyone? Hope my family is doing well. I am fine and having fun. See you soon!
__ I am feeling homesick but should feel better in a day or two. My favorite things help me to feel better.
