My life with Autism💖 SWIPE 🔚
Just posted over on snap 👻 banditgirlgoods an insight into life as an Autistic female. I’m considering doing a whole vlog on this for anyone who’s interested as it isn’t very well know the difference between male and female Autism. #keepinitreal#sensoryoverload
This cutie pie 🥧 & I went to the local #artigras2018 today. She had fun playing on the playground and listening to the marching band — In her own way. She played alone or with me, not with the other children. When an older boy ran by & unexpectedly pushed the spinner she was on, she got scared 😟 and ran off the playground. Then We followed the marching band. She said she liked the music 🎵😍 — but she didn’t march or dance 💃🏻 and refused to look at or speak to the band member who offered her a tambourine to play. Her hands 🤚 covered her ears 👂 when we clapped for the band but she refused to wear her soundproof headphones 🎧. This is her sensory processing disorder in action. It takes patience & planning to parent a child with SPD. Transitions are harder. Typical social activities can be more challenging. It can feel isolating as a parent when you see all the other children playing and the parents talking to one another while you are alone and helping your child manage the overstimulation of the playground or event. SPD affects everyone in the family and we all have to work a little bit harder to communicate and get through typical daily tasks together.
If you are a parent who has a child 🧒 with SPD please know you are not alone! There are some great resources available like Sensory Processing Alliance (find them on FB ) that can help you find support groups and resources in your local area. .
I wanted to share how I personally scent my household and the aromas that I often live around. Our sense of smell is extremely powerful and often overlooked. I forgot to mention PALO SANTO! Please feel free to share your favorite household aromas 🤓
Due to the love it received, the shirt can be found at @basebutter!
This is for anyone else that suffers from sensory overload to sounds, well as a few other areas to also some of you might know I have aspergers ie autism and going out is really hard for me. Today I purchased some nice in ear earphones so I can listen to music when I’m out so all I hear is the tunes to keep me settled, I found this helped today when I went to the shops I still had issues but not as bad as normally it cut it down by about 25%. Theses sound really good as well I can’t stand cheaply made systems as my ears will pick up unwanted sounds.
I’m trying to find ways of coping and this works for me only issue would be when I’m apart of a conversation I wouldn’t be able to wear them.
If you have some sensor issues and found ways of dealing with it let me know in the comments below #autism#sensoryoverload#sennheiser#earphones#music
