How to ace an eye exam for kids

The boys look super cute in glasses. And I often wonder if they’re going to need glasses like me. The only way to find out is to do an eye exam for kids. And here my heart sinks a bit because I know how much prep this is going to take! Having special needs kids is amazing. But it also means that everything can be a bit more complicated. Getting out of the house is usually a military operation. And doing something like going to the dentist or the optometrist, could take a lot more planning than that. But it is necessary and it is possible. So this is my game plan:

  1. Find an optometrist that has experience with special needs kids.
  2. Speak to the boys about what the eye exam for kids will entail.
  3. Show them videos about it.
  4. Give them a countdown to the day.
  5. Offer an AMAZING reward!
  6. Give it a go.
