    My son has difficulty with transitions. Whenever we change route or we are going to a new place, My son gets upset and takes out his seat belt. He used a booster seat before but because of that we have to get him a car seat with harness. He is getting bigger now and soon we have to put him back to a booster seat. How can I help him to stay buckled all the time?


      Lots of ways this can be done. there are covers for the seat beat so that he can’t open it.
      If you know you are going a different way, then you can do a picture book of the route you are going to take and talk to him about it before you go.
      Also you can do a social story about how we have to keep our seat belt on in the car. Everyone has to wear a seat belt. Also you can play a game of going to where ever you are going and use chairs to use as the car seats. Make sure that you use something for the seat belt – a belt or tie can work.
