Skill # 1: Sensory Integration

Understanding the world can be one of the hardest things for children with autism. Sensory processing does not only affect classroom learning. It also extends to relationships, communication, self-awareness, and safety. Not knowing how to make sense of a feeling in the stomach area - whether it means hunger or a full bladder - can be remedied in adulthood by setting a cell phone alarm to ring every 2 hours as a reminder to use the bathroom.
