Autism news: A rare inside look from the world of Sensory Processing Disorder (common with autism)
June 17, 2020

It’s no secret that many children with autism also have Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD), a condition that can greatly interfere with a child’s ability to function.

Karen Thomas, a specialist who also has a child with autism, says that SPD can even cause negative behaviors through no fault of their own.

Some time ago, I posted an article about SPD to help raise awareness among parents as well as teachers.

It includes a video showing a rare, inside look at what the world is like for someone who suffers from SPD. With the help of her family, a young girl with autism named Carly Fleischmann decided to make a video to help raise awareness.

I can remember when my son was very young, I used to wish I could see what the world was like from his perspective.

Now we have one of those rare chances.

I encourage you to take a look at the link at the end of this message. Because we can only seek help for our kids if we are aware of their needs.

Warm Regards,
