Raising kids with Autism and Sensory processing issues is challenging. Rewarding…..but challenging.
Between routines, loud noises, bright lights and tactile issues, it’s like a never ending battle. It’s like trying to avoid stepping on an invisible landmine while walking through a field full of them.
How do you and your family manage?
What struggles do you face on a daily basis? Have you found anything that helps your family to avoid those invisible landmines?

I just have to find ways to avoid or manage. Like for loud noises and High Pitch Noises I use earpuds to reduce and filter. The texture issue got both food and Fabics like clothing. For like issues with food there is some food I avoid because of the texture when eating it. I use to have a sensory issue with CRT monitors then LCD came along 🙂 .
AMDuser was the crt monitor thing flickering
lostandtired AMDuser I was seeing the thing redraw at default 60Hz. For me I had to set it in to I think it was 72Hz
