I read a lot about it for my son has it though I don't know how to help him. He gets really anxios in crowed gets overstemulated easily. Can't stand certain texture terrified of flies likes rough housing for he like pressure. I just don't know how to help him for he also has developement delay so it's hard for him to understand what is going on and is hard for me to explain to him for you can't make things you say to long for you loose him.Answer Question
Check out Cafemom's group, Asperger's Syndrome: Sensory Seekers and Sensory Avoider's.
I have a son who is a sensory seeker. Some things bother him, such as vacuum cleaners, thunder, but mostly he craves sensory input. it is like his nerves never fully developed and craves intense stimuation in way of strong foods, anything tactile, he does not understand limits in touch. (we got a puppy and having her has helped oddles and bunches}
He also stemms, makes repetitive movements such as hand flapping, snapping his finers, tapping the wall... We ar decreasing his dairy and he is doing better. We are trying to figure out how to get him off glutem, anything with flour.
I have seen some improvement with a small diet change. We also try and aviod red and yellow and blue food coloring.
I hope your check our our group.
See ya there
