Along with excitement, the holidays can bring holiday stress. The holiday season can not only bring excitement, but holiday stress. The activity level during this busy time of year can impact children as well as adults. Specifically, children with behavior, sensory-processing, attention or physical challenges may find the holidays particularly stressful.
