Changing sensory systems

Autism and a changing sensory system, by Judy Endow.

Regardless of age, all autistics need to be kind to themselves when their sensory system changes. It isn’t easy because sensory differences, whether overload, not enough input, distorted input or a processing, storing or retrieving difference – all of it winds up affecting the way we behave.

A good reminder that sensory needs for autistic people change over time, and the sensory regulation strategies that worked in the past may not be what’s required now.
