Once again, Sensory Processing issues interfere with life

These sensory issues are absolutely killing me as a parent and I’m not even the one having to physically experience them.

This morning sucked. On the positive side though, both boys got to school but it was a shifty, meltdown filled morning in The Autism Dad household. Elliott was pretty hyper but mostly cooperative and that’s awesome. Emmett was another story all together. He’s been having a rough time falling asleep at night since Christmas break …

I don’t know what we’re going to do

We had a really difficult morning because Emmett would not tolerate shoes or socks once again.  I went last night and tried to find new socks that he might be more comfortable with but he wouldn’t even try them on. This morning however, he was finally able to put on one of the pairs of …
