Intro from Lynn:
I have listened to Paul talk many times and love the way he explains the different aspects of being autistic. We can all be confused by the long words given to different sensory aspects such as “Alexithymia”. There are many names and labels for different sensory responses and as young autistic people grow up these sensory responses are likely to change. Hormones, body changes and new experiences will impact on the sensory systems and in this blog Paul shares his own experiences and gives some advice on how to understand and support our autistic young people through their sensory awareness and development.
