Blog:The Unabashed Autist- “Why can't you be like that Lloyd Braun?”

I’m still paying off the debt to my body for eating like I don’t understand how consequences work.  I feel like my neurons are communicating via dial-up when I’m used to gigabit speeds.  The signals get there eventually, but I’m so exasperated and clumsy in the meantime.  I’d love to share about how executive function is involved, and the importance of eating wisely, but it’s not happening today.

I’m supposed to leave for my sisters’

Parent Lisa Wilson wasn’t sure if her son was developing the skills he should for his age. “He wasn’t talking as a typical two-year-old would’ve been talking,” she said.

But he was her first child, so she wasn’t sure.

In every city and town in Connecticut there’s a program available

Video:Jason Love- Not an Autism Friendly Event, but the kids get to meet Star Wars Characters & Play with Play-Doh

Video:Jason Love- Not an Autism Friendly Event, but the kids get to meet Star Wars Characters & Play with Play-Doh

While it was fun to Storm Troopers, Jedi Knights, and other characters; this event was not autism friendly. Everett had to leave within the first 15 minutes.

Evelyn is normally an outgoing and love being around other kids, but with her sensory sensitivity, she was struggling. The opportunity to play with play-dough made the event a bit more bearable.

We don’t blame the event because they have to work with what they have, but the smallness of the venue, lack of quiet areas, and the loud speakers projecting through the entire building made it impossible for sensory sensitive individuals and those with autism to stay very long.

Video:Fathering Autism- Stopping An Autism Meltdown & Other Questions (and hallulla)

More of your questions answered and we address a big one. Stopping an autism meltdown. DISCLAIMER: The method that we use to stop a meltdown is what works best for Abigail and the video is not intended to be used as a how-to or training for autistic meltdowns, restrictive holds, or anything else. What I can recommend is that the best way to stop a meltdown is to give the autistic person a feeling of comfort and control. That always helps.

Ucdavis.edu: Vasopressin a Possible Biomarker for Social Deficits in Autism

One of the characteristics of children with autism spectrum disorder is reduced social ability.
