Social events can be both exciting and daunting for anyone, but for individuals with autism, they can present unique challenges due to sensory sensitivities. Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects how people perceive and interact with the world around them. Sensory processing issues are a common aspect of autism, making crowded, noisy, and stimulating social gatherings overwhelming and distressing for some individuals. However, with thoughtful preparation and coping strategies, individuals with autism can not only survive but thrive during social events. Here are some helpful tips for autism sensory survival at social gatherings: 1. Plan and Prepare: Preparation is key to managing sensory overload during social events. Before attending an event, gather information about the location, the expected number of attendees, and the schedule. Knowing what to expect can help reduce anxiety and make the environment feel more familiar. 2. Communicate and Advocate: Inform close friends, family, or event organizers about your sensory sensitivities. Letting them know in advance allows them to make accommodations, such as providing a quiet space to retreat to if needed. Advocating for your needs is essential, and those who care about you will likely be supportive and understanding. 3. Use Calming Techniques: Practice relaxation techniques before the event, such as deep breathing, mindfulness exercises, or using sensory tools like stress balls or fidget spinners. These techniques can help regulate emotions and reduce anxiety during overwhelming situations. 4. Dress Comfortably: Choose clothing that feels comfortable and does not trigger sensory discomfort. It could mean wearing soft, loose-fitting clothes or clothes with minimal tags and seams. Feeling physically at ease can significantly impact how one copes with sensory challenges. 5. Headphones or Earplugs: Carry noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs to dampen loud noises at social events. These can be lifesavers in environments where noise levels can quickly become overwhelming. 6. Plan Breaks: Allow yourself or your loved one with autism to take breaks during the event. Stepping away from the crowd and finding a quiet space for a few minutes can provide much-needed relief and prevent sensory overload. 7. Visual Schedules: For individuals who benefit from visual support, consider creating a schedule or social story detailing the flow of the event. Knowing what comes next can reduce anxiety and create a sense of predictability. 8. Practice Social Scripts: For those who struggle with social interactions, practicing simple conversation starters or responses in advance can ease the pressure of socializing. 9. Bring a Support Person: Having a trusted friend, family member, or support companion can be reassuring and provide a sense of security during social events. 10. Focus on Enjoyment: Remember that attending social events should be an enjoyable experience. If certain situations become too overwhelming, it's okay to take a step back and prioritize self-care. --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/theaspieworld/support

"Holidays = Stress" has become a part of our language. But why are you stressed around the holidays? Today we unpack 6 very common stressors for parents during the holidays: 1) There's so much to do 2) It's so hard to stay healthy during the holidays 3) I have to "make it magical" 4) My .... is so hard to please. (aka meeting other people's expectations) 5) Sensory overload (aka holiday/pumpkin spice everything!) 6) MONEY For each, we explore a question that just isn't asked enough of parents: What do you want? Little shifts, practices and reframes can completely change the experience that we are having now (and we can use it at other times of the year!). It's truly a gift that only you can give yourself. Check out the one that I discovered during recording and I'm taking it with me this week. If you want to build on, I'm hosting a How to Survive the Holidays series in early December.

Autism spectrum disorder, or ASD, is a neurodevelopmental disorder that covers a diverse group of conditions. Since it's a spectrum, what it means to be diagnosed with autism varies widely. So do the experiences of autistic people and those who try cannabis and CBD for their health issues.In this episode, host Brit Smith talks to two autistic people about their experiences trying cannabis and CBD for common problems for those on the spectrum, like anxiety, focus, masking, sensory processing, and physical discomfort.First, Brit speaks with California-based writer Ian Donley, who penned the essay in the back of the fall 2023 issue of Different Leaf magazine, entitled; "I'm Autistic, This is What It's Like Getting High."Then, Brit chats with her younger brother, musician Spud Smith, about how cannabis extracts have impacted his ASD-related issues like anxiety and sensory overload, and his symptoms of Tourette's.Get the fall 2023 issue of Different Leaf magazine at DifferentLeaf.com or find your nearest seller at DifferentLeaf.com/on-the-newsstandFollow us on social media @DifferentLeaf and @BritTheBritishGet your DL merch now at xDifferentLeaf.com

We're doing a Deep Dive into our best episodes around a single topic. Find the Spotify playlist for this “Deep Dive” here. This group of episodes is about parenting kids who don't fit the mold. This week, we're revisiting this episode from 2021. When a parent first hears about highly sensitive kids– or their opposite, sensory seekers– it can provide a profound moment of recognition, of connecting the dots for things about our kids that up until now have baffled us. We think understanding these sensory tendencies can help us parent our kids more effectively and compassionately. Not every kid who shows hyper- or hypo-sensitivity will go on to require occupational therapy, struggle in school, or anything else. But as childmind.org explains, ""These problems can be tough on kids, and get in the way of them functioning effectively, learning, and making friends." Every kid who displays these behaviors and preferences can benefit from a parent who understands and can therefore effectively support and address for the otherwise confusing behaviors that might ensue. We don't have to accommodate every dictate of an extremely picky eater, or messy playroom caused by a sensory seeker– but it's worth exploring, because it can really help us as parents to understand where these things might be coming from.

So what is a sensory room anyway? It is a space that allows students with sensory needs to receive an immersive sensory experience. The space does not have to be an entire room, a corner is better than nothing. It is also not limited to a special education classroom, but rather can serve a purpose in a general education classroom as well. This week I am sharing ideas of what to put in a sensory space and how to get one started on a budget. You will come away with practical ideas of where to start so that your students' needs are completely met. In this episode you will learn: The benefits of having a sensory space. How to adapt a corner of your classroom to meet these needs of your students. How to use grants to get the items you need for your sensory space. About different resources you can put in your sensory space.

Beyond the Sessions is answering YOUR parenting questions! In this episode, Dr. Rebecca Hershberg, Dr. Emily Upshur, and I talk about... 2:25 - Understanding the difference between typical development and when there is a sensory issue. 4:04 - The recommendations for how to handle sensory issues, ADHD, and anxiety at a young age are all the same, so it's less about having to identify it perfectly and more about how we respond to it. 5:21 - At 4 years old a lot of these sensory-seeking behaviors are normative, once children reach around 7 years old, if the behaviors persist, then you may be able to identify this as an issue. 9:34 - Could this need to always touch his baby brother be a delayed jealousy issue? 10:48 - Examining how much attention you are giving to the concerning behavior and what happens before and after this action. 13:42 - How to effectively use praise to positively reinforce the behaviors you do like to see and prepare them ahead of time for anticipated challenges. 20:19 - Try to approach this issue with collaborative problem-solving to see what suggestions your child may come up with. ✨We want to hear from you!

Imagine Thursday. Does Thursday have a color? What about the sound of rain — does that sound taste like chocolate? Or does the sound of a saxophone feel triangular to you? For about 3% of the population, the sharp lines between our senses blend together. Textures may have tastes, sounds, shapes, numbers may have colors. This sensory crosstalk is called synesthesia, and it's not a disorder, just a different way of experiencing the world. To learn about the neuroscience behind this fascinating phenomenon and what it tells us about how our brains perceive the world, we were fortunate enough to speak with David Eagleman, a neuroscientist, author, and entrepreneur here at Stanford. Eagleman has long been fascinated by synesthesia and what it means about how our perceptions shape our reality.We also discuss Eagleman's work with Neosensory, a company that develops technology to help individuals with hearing loss by translating sound into vibrations on the skin.

Ben shares his personal experience of stumbling upon sensory toys at a daycare and witnessing their popularity at Target Field. From Orbeez to kinetic sand, bubble poppers to fiber optic toys, they explore the various types of sensory toys that are capturing the attention of both children and parents.

Do you find yourself spending most of your treatment time dealing with maladaptive behaviors in children? Have you considered why there is such a prevalence of behavioral challenges? What has changed over the last 30 years to cause this rise in maladaptive behavioral patterns? In this course clinicians will dig to the root cause of maladaptive behavioral patterns and learn effective treatment strategies to remediate or prevent these issues. Learn why differentiating between sensory and behavioral reactions makes a difference. Clinicians who can identify the root cause of difficulty are able to treat these problems quicker and more effectively. This workshop will use effective teaching methods to give learners strategies to incorporate into their practice setting. Learners will be able to explain how sensory processing difficulties can cause or exacerbate maladaptive behavioral patterns, determine if a behavior is intentional, and the reasoning for an overwhelming increase in behavioral issues. This course will provide strategies to create meaningful treatment plans for clients.

Friendships Can Be Bleeping Hard! Friendship struggles are real! How does being neurodivergent or specifically autistic impact friendships? Common themes of being misunderstood in spite having good intentions, and allowing others to see you in ways that are not how you see yourself. I talk about navigating breakups, not being able to do repair after a rupture, and using these painful experiences to clarify your values and what you want in your friendships. I also talk about coping strategies, support and self-care. HIGHLIGHTS Some common struggles in friendships if you're neurodivergent: · Friendship struggles, relationships, friendships are hard · Struggling with communication and self-expression · Feeling misunderstood or not accepted by others · Difficulty with maintaining friendships over time · Struggling with boundaries and expressing needs · Feeling pressure to conform to societal expectations or norms · Struggling with self-doubt or imposter syndrome in social situations · Difficulty with finding supportive and inclusive communities · Difficulty with social cues and nonverbal communication · Sensory sensitivities that can make certain social situations overwhelming or uncomfortable · Difficulty with small talk or maintaining conversations on topics that are not of interest · Difficulty with understanding and navigating social hierarchies or power dynamics · Difficulty with understanding and expressing emotions in a way that is easily understood by others Tips for cultivating resilience and adaptability in the face of friendship struggles: - · Acknowledge and validate your emotions: It's okay to feel hurt, disappointed, or angry when a friendship goes through a rough patch. · Take time to process your emotions and give yourself permission to feel them without judgment. · Practice self-compassion: Treat yourself with the same kindness and understanding you would offer a friend who is going through a tough time. Remember that you are doing the best you can with the resources you have. – · Seek support: Reach out to other friends, family members, or a therapist or coach for support and perspective. Talking through your feelings with someone you trust can help you gain clarity and feel less alone. – · Practice forgiveness: Forgiveness doesn't mean condoning hurtful behavior or pretending everything is okay. It means letting go of resentment and choosing to focus on healing and growth instead. · Set boundaries: If a friendship is consistently causing you stress or pain, it may be time to set boundaries or even end the friendship. Remember that you deserve to be treated with respect and kindness. – · Cultivate gratitude: Focus on the positive aspects of your life and relationships, even in the midst of struggles. Gratitude can help shift your perspective and increase your resilience. Common misconceptions about personal growth and how to reframe our expectations: Misconceptions: - · Personal growth is a linear process with a clear endpoint – · Personal growth means always being happy and positive – · Personal growth is a solitary journey that doesn't involve others – · Personal growth is a one-size-fits-all process Reframing expectations: - · Personal growth is a lifelong journey with ups and downs, setbacks and progress – · Personal growth involves a range of emotions, including discomfort and pain, that can lead to greater self-awareness and resilience – · Personal growth involves connecting with others, seeking support, and learning from different perspectives – · Personal growth is a unique process that looks different for everyone, and involves finding what works best for you and your individual needs PODCAST HOST Patricia was a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, but is now exclusively providing coaching. She knows what it's like to feel like an outcast, misfit, and truthteller. Learning about the trait of being a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), then learning she is autistic helped Patricia rewrite her history with a deeper understanding, appreciation, and a sense of self-compassion. She created the podcast Unapologetically Sensitive to help other neurodivergent folks know that they aren't alone, and that having a brain that is wired differently comes with amazing gifts, and some challenges. Patricia works online globally working individually with people, and she teaches Online Courses for HSPs that focus on understanding what it means to be an HSP, self-care, self-compassion, boundaries, perfectionism, mindfulness, communication, and creating a lifestyle that honors you LINKS HSP Online Course--https://unapologeticallysensitive.com/hsp-online-groups/ Online HSP Course Materials (no group included) https://patriciayounglcsw.com/product-category/hsp-classes/ Receive the top 10 most downloaded episodes of the podcast-- https://www.subscribepage.com/e6z6e6 Sign up for the Newsletter-- https://www.subscribepage.com/y0l7d4 To write a review in itunes: click on this link https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/unapologetically-sensitive/id1440433481?mt=2 select “listen on Apple Podcasts” chose “open in itunes” choose “ratings and reviews” click to rate the number of starts click “write a review” Website--www.unapologeticallysensitive.com Facebook-- https://www.facebook.com/Unapologetically-Sensitive-2296688923985657/ Closed/Private Facebook group Unapologetically Sensitive-- https://www.facebook.com/groups/2099705880047619/ Instagram-- https://www.instagram.com/unapologeticallysensitive/ Youtube-- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOE6fodj7RBdO3Iw0NrAllg/videos?view_as=subscriber Tik Tok--https://www.tiktok.com/@unapologeticallysensitiv e-mail-- email@example.com Show hashtag--#unapologeticallysensitive Music-- Gravel Dance by Andy Robinson www.andyrobinson.com

Hi, I'm TJ, or Tiffany, creator of the social media platforms, Nigh Functioning Autism. I am a single mother of three neurodivergent teens. I live and work in and around Maryland and Virginia, in the Washington DC area. I am Autistic, diagnosed in my late teens. However, I was diagnosed with other conditions when I was in elementary school, like central auditory processing disorder and ADHD. I also have had epilepsy and OCD since I was a child. I am hard of hearing as well. As such, I use many ways to communicate like ASL, mouth words, high-tech AAC and other ways depending on how accessible my speech and memory is to me at the moment.I work in special education or more preferred, ‘accessible education', as a paraeducator for elementary school and a communication teacher/ partner to mostly teen and young adult Autistic nonspeakers.My passion in the disability space is communication and education rights for people of all disabilities. I specifically love teaching how to implement high-tech speech generating devices in schools and homes. I always say, I would have access to my own speech if I had text-based or high-tech speech generating strategies earlier in my life.I proudly sit on the board for Lilly's Voice, a non-profit organization that provides high-tech speech generating devices for nonspeakers under age 18 in the United States. I am also a member of the Maryland Developmental Disabilities council, which is a federally funded, national organization in every state that sets the disability culture, policy, and laws in that state.

Sensory needs such as loud music is your partner's soother, but it is your trigger. Watching the same TV show over and over again is your soother, but it is your partner's trigger. You are Autistic and ADHD, your soothers and triggers will overlap. Ashlyn Baker is a mental health professional and owner of the podcast I Married Your Therapist.

When Jerry's son was diagnosed with Autism in 2007, Jerry realized that despite having participated in dozens of calls for service involving autistic individuals, he knew next to nothing about Autism. Jerry began documenting his journey as an Autism dad in the blog Bacon and Juice Boxes and his writing began to resonate with other special needs parents around the world. After he revealed that he was a police officer, he began receiving hundreds of messages from other special needs parents who were concerned that their loved ones would be misunderstood by first responders. Realizing the need for better education, Jerry began Blue Bridge Autism Training to train law enforcement around the world about Autism and best practices for responding to calls involving autistic individuals.

Did you know that being a highly sensitive person can be a superpower? It means you're more in tune with your surroundings, like people's moods, voices, and body language. Do you quickly pick up on the needs and feelings of others? Do you become easily overwhelmed by sensory input such as a beep-beep-beep repetitive sound, bright lights, and or strong smells? Or do subtle changes in your environment affect you more than most? Maybe you've been called ‘too sensitive' more than once (or twice)... At least 20% (1/5th) of the population is considered highly sensitive. So, you are not alone.This week, we welcome Linda Binns, Breakthrough Energy Expert, and HSP Expert, to share the latest research and her own survivor-to-thriver experiences as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Linda is an accomplished energy and HSP coach and author of seven self-help books, including the wonderful VALUE ME!: Advantages of Being a Highly Sensitive Professional. Along with her research, personal learnings, and coping strategies, Linda also shares• Simple ‘grounding' techniques to enhance health and reduce stress• How to incorporate and appreciate your uniqueness as an HSP • Strategies to welcome your sensitivity into your everyday life• How to share with others what you need and be open to receiveAnd more including, it's okay to be a highly sensitive person! More About Our Guest: Linda Binns describes herself as an introverted, intuitive, and highly sensitive person who became a small business owner, author, international speaker, radio and television guest, consultant, and coach. Her childhood experiences left her unprepared to face life's challenges. She felt inadequate and different from everybody else - like an outsider. Many times, she struggled with relationships (both personally and professionally) until she discovered the right tools. Little by little, her confidence increased. While her experiences in various careers in the corporate world were invaluable, she didn't find fulfillment there. In 1997, she started her own energy coaching and consulting practice. Now, her greatest joy is to share and discover with you just how you can achieve the highest levels of success and fulfillment in your personal and professional life. Her goal is to guide you to thrive in your personal and professional life. Learn more at www.LindaBinns.comNote: While HSP itself is not an autoimmune condition, it is common for individuals with HSP to have autoimmune tendencies. Psychologist Elaine Aron coined the term highly sensitive person (HSP) to describe those with extra-sensitivity to various stimuli, and HSP varies from individual to individual. HSP is also known as people with sensory processing sensitivity. Sensory processing sensitivity is not considered an illness or diagnosis by Aron and other researchers. Instead, it is viewed as an evolved personality trait that can be advantageous in certain circumstances.Those with a highly sensitive nature often exhibit an enhanced ability to sense potential dangers and subtle social cues that others might miss. A highly sensitive person (HSP) is more aware of their surroundings, such as smells, sounds, the emotions of others, and even the 'energy of the room.' This 'superpower' also makes them prone to overstimulation, fatigue, burnout, and exhaustion. * Your host and guest are neither a doctor nor a medical professional.

These sensory cues can be both inherent, such as the natural sweetness of fruit, and learned, as in the association between a particular aroma and a favorite dish. One crucial aspect of this research is delving into how sensory properties of food, like texture and taste, contribute to our choices and consumption patterns. Food texture, for example, plays a key role in determining how quickly we consume a meal, with softer textures often being associated with faster eating rates. Sensory intensity and palatability are also central themes in this research. Moreover, research into dietary fat reveals intriguing phenomena like “fat blindness,” where the ability to discriminate different levels of fat diminishes as taste intensity increases. Understanding these relationships can help shed light on factors contributing to overeating and potential avenues for behavior modification. To give us a better insight into this field of research, Professor in Sensory Science and Eating Behavior at Wageningen University, Prof. Ciarán Forde, is on the podcast to discuss these ideas.
AFAB Autism Assessment: PDA, and other Common Questions Answered Dr. Jessica Myszak, who provides autism assessments for late-diagnosed, high masking women answers the following questions: What is PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance or Persistent/Pervasive Drive for Autonomy)? What does PDA look like? What is important to ask if someone wants to pursue a formal autism diagnosis? What are common comorbidities (as well as misdiagnoses) if one is autistic? Is it possible to manipulate or cheat an autism assessment or fool the assessor? What happens after one is diagnosed as autistic? GUEST Dr. Jessica Myszak, Licensed Psychologist HIGHLIGHTS What is PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance or Pervasive/Persistent Drive for Autonomy? PDA stands for Pathological Demand Avoidance, a subtype of autism that involves significant anxiety and demand avoidance. Many people with PDA prefer to call it Persistent or Pervasive Drive for Autonomy. PDA is a newly identified subtype of autism that can result in meltdowns or explicit behavior or just avoidance of everyday tasks. People with PDA often have a desire to have control in order to preserve their autonomy. PDA can be challenging to diagnose, and many people with PDA struggle to get a diagnosis. Strategies for managing PDA symptoms include recognizing triggers, reducing demands, and providing choices. People with PDA often work best in jobs where they have minimal oversight or control over their work. PDA is not a personal choice or behavior but rather a way that the brain works. It's a nervous system disorder/disability. Understanding PDA can help people with the condition and their loved ones cope with the challenges it presents. PDA is a complex condition that requires individualized treatment and support. What does PDA looks like? Everyday tasks can often result in meltdowns or explicit behavior or just avoidance of these types of demands in a variety of ways. PDA can be misdiagnosed as oppositional defiant disorder because people don't know what autism looks like. PDA is often characterized by a need for things to be in a certain order for a sense of stability. Children with PDA may have meltdowns, and PDA is often misdiagnosed as oppositional defiant disorder. Adults with PDA may struggle with social interactions, have difficulty with authority figures, and may have trouble with employment. PDA can present differently in different people, and there is no one-size-fits-all description of what it looks like. People with PDA may have a unique set of triggers and coping mechanisms that are specific to their individual experience. Understanding what PDA looks like can help people with the condition and their loved ones cope with the challenges it presents. Having another human to co-regulate with, can be instrumental for someone who is PDA. What is important to ask if someone wants to pursue a formal autism diagnosis? It's important to find a qualified professional who has experience diagnosing autism in high masking, late diagnosed adults. Ask how many AFAB (if relevant) the person has assessed. How do they assess for high masking and internalizing behaviors. Ask about the diagnostic process and what it entails, including any assessments or evaluations that will be used. Ask about the criteria for an autism diagnosis and what the professional will be looking for during the assessment. Inquire about the professional's experience working with adults or children with autism, depending on the age of the person seeking a diagnosis. Ask about the cost of the assessment and whether insurance will cover it. Inquire about any additional support or resources that the professional can provide after the diagnosis, such as referrals to therapists or support groups. Ask about the timeline for the assessment and when the results will be available. Inquire about any additional information or documentation that may be needed for the assessment, such as medical records or school reports. Ask about any potential barriers to getting a diagnosis, such as the need for a parent interview or other assessments that may be required. Inquire about the professional's approach to diagnosing autism and whether they take a person-centered approach that considers the individual's unique experiences and needs. Is it possible to manipulate the results of the autism assessments or fool the assessor? Dr. Myzak acknowledges that people with autism are often very good at masking their symptoms and may be able to manipulate an assessment to some extent. - However, she notes that many assessments have embedded validity measures that can help detect when someone is being overly negative or positive in their responses. Dr. Myzak emphasizes the importance of being authentic and honest during the assessment process, as this is the best way to get an accurate diagnosis and receive appropriate support. She also suggests that people who are concerned about being able to remember early signs of autism can do their own detective work by asking family members or friends for information. Dr. Myzak believes that it is important to trust her clients and take a person-centered approach to diagnosis, rather than relying solely on standardized assessments. Common comorbidities if one is autistic: Anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), are common comorbidities of autism. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is also frequently seen in individuals with autism. Depression and other mood disorders are more prevalent in people with autism than in the general population. Sensory processing disorder (SPD) is a common comorbidity of autism, as many people with autism have difficulty processing sensory information. Sleep disorders, such as insomnia and sleep apnea, are more common in individuals with autism than in the general population. Gastrointestinal (GI) problems, such as constipation, diarrhea, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), are more common in people with autism. Epilepsy and other seizure disorders are more prevalent in individuals with autism than in the general population. Tourette syndrome and other tic disorders are more common in people with autism. Intellectual disability is a common comorbidity of autism, although not all individuals with autism have intellectual disability. Other conditions that may co-occur with autism include allergies, asthma, and autoimmune disorders. What happens after an autism diagnosis? After an autism diagnosis, individuals and their families may work with healthcare providers to develop a treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and challenges. Treatment for autism may include a combination of therapies, such as behavioral therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and social skills training. Medications may also be prescribed to help manage symptoms of autism, such as anxiety, depression, or hyperactivity. Individuals with autism may also benefit from support groups, educational programs, and other resources that can help them and their families better understand the condition and navigate daily life. It is important for individuals with autism to receive ongoing support and care, as their needs may change over time and new challenges may arise. Some individuals with autism may also be eligible for special education services or accommodations in school or the workplace. Families may also need to navigate insurance coverage and other financial considerations related to autism treatment and support. Ultimately, the goal of post-diagnosis care is to help individuals with autism lead fulfilling and meaningful lives, with the support and resources they need to thrive. GUEST BIO Dr. Jessica Myszak is a Chicago-area psychologist who specializes in autism assessment for both children and adults.
