Autism and the little things

Most people take the little things for granted. When you have child with Autism you don’t have that luxury.
Emmett John has been screaming all night because he is stuffy. Emmett experiences sensory overload when he is stuffy. He panics because it becomes harder to breathe through his nose.

Many people would be able to just give their child something to help with the congestion and help them back to sleep. In our case if “Emmett don’t sleep don’t nobody sleep”.

For a child with Autism and severe sensory issues things like this are so completely overwhelming they don’t know what to do. Even after the medicine kicks in to dry him out it’s to little to late. The damage has already been done. Once he is on sensory overload it is VERY difficult to settle him down.

People need to know just how completely encompassing Autism is. It affects everything in ways you would never think of.

Autism, for me mean’s no sleep again tonight.
