Also calling your child Autistic is a recognition of them it’s not a label.

What are the different kinds of sensory seeking behaviors?

1. Oral: Anything that provides a mouth feel, like chewing, licking and biting.

Experiencing the Physical Symptoms of Anxiety

As an Autistic adult I suffer from anxiety if my routines are changed and it can manifest with physical symptoms.

Today I was planning for an appointment I had on my schedule for tomorrow. I arranged childcare and my travel route. I planned what to wear and what to dress the children in. I sorted out our fares and looked online at Google Maps to visually see where I was going so I was mentally prepared.

I decided to ring up as ...

One word that ruined our day.

Posted by:

 

After taking my children to the park I decided to take them for a meal, so we went to a local café. They’d had a day of splashing in the paddling pool and playing on the slides and swings and were all played out, tired and ready to eat.

 

We are sitting there enjoying our meal and at a nearby table a young woman appears to be enjoying hers. The toilet door opens and a child of about four years old ...
