Sensory Processing Accommodations
Sensory processing sensitivities and preferences are frequently a concern for individuals on the autism spectrum. While these issues are best understood from an individual perspective, some commonly expressed concerns and a variety of helpful strategies may be considered. The book Asperger Syndrome and Sensory Issues: Practical Solutions for Making Sense of the World by Brenda Smith Myles et al. offers an understanding of these issues, the impact of sensory challenges on behavior, and ideas for interventions and accommodations.
