With Rebecca Shaffer
Keeping a Routine is the first in our series of short videos — My Child is Home… Now What?? — from Rebecca Shaffer, PsyD, director of psychological services at the Cincinnati Fragile X Clinic. We all know routines are important and can be challenging. This is even more true when your child is home full time.
