How do your kids on the #Autism Spectrum handle storms?

We’ve had some pretty crazy thunderstorms tearing through tonight. The boys have been on edge and very nervous as a result. It probably goes without saying that they are sensitive to the loud noise and bright flashes of lightening.

Lizze and I were lucky to get them to sleep tonight.

I was wondering, how your kids handle storms? Are they easily frightened by the noise?

Have you found a way to help them feel better about the loud , scary noise?

Interestingly enough, I don’t notice any difference in my 4-year old’s behavior or reaction to storms. If anything, if the storm happens over night, he seems more tired and lethargic the next day (as if he didn’t sleep well). His teacher notices that as well. Days after a storm, he tends to have a tougher time listening and focusing in class.


@Michael Miller that’s good that he’s not afraid.. 🙂
