Sensory Issues in Autism/ Asperger Syndrome

Sensory Integration is like indigestion of the brain. Autistic children are affected from this every day. They can function better with help.   New situations are scary because they are unpredictable. Hard-headesness is a survival skill for these kids. Humans learn to cope with a changing enviroment by being flexible. Autistic kids are not flexible.They are very rigid, they like sameness. They appear stubborn because they are not the boss of their own body. They are not in control so they try to control us.  Their lives are full of uncertanties and obstacles that are not part of the script that they know. They have trouble adapting to lives demands. They require our attention tailored to their needs. for more information on Sensory issues.
