my now 8year old son screamed when it was time for nails to be cut, hated being swung around especially upside down, and detested hair cuts, would scream the barbours out. Limited proprioception was diagnosed in primary one by o.t. He hates sudden loud noise and also smells are hurrendous he doesnt like

being touched when he doesnt know its coming. Soft touch he explains feels like someone hitting or punching him. Over the last 12 months he has problems with taste, before he would eat anything now everything has to be bland.

He enjoys a squeeze at night before bed ie; wrap quilt around him and lie on top of him, he says it relaxes his whole body. we have tried weighted blankets, end up on floor,weighted tops,doesnt like, got the football tight tops for under football strips, loves it feels secure.

I have worked out that no one knows your child as well as you. Find out as much as you can about sensory issues and pick out what applies to you. You do not have to spend a fortune either. Adapt and use your imagination. Thinking in picture by Temple Grandin explained alot. One of those books you have to keep with. Excellent.

Sensory and asd
by: Anonymousmarjory my son is now 17yrs

Hi I received my wee story by email when my son was 8yrs old. Seems a life time ago. How things & worries have changed. Like all us parents we find our way. If I can help one parent at least one I will be happy.
Like most I believe, when first diagnosed I bought every and book literature all mostly a waste of time & effort. Sad to say. I found out about a group of parents with autistic children, I sat and listened, oh how I learned lots, about swimming lessons, over sensitive hearing classes, schools, treatment of and children in mainstream schools. Amazing a wealth of information especially locally. So go look go online mostly ,& never give up EVER.
I live in Glasgow this group was off great western Rd. So go look.
My boy has just finished 6th year at school exam results in. All fantastic couldn't ask for more.
We are now going into the "adult" stage..fingers crossed all goes well.
Good luck to u all.xx
