From Summer Kinard: A 4 part series – Autistic Brain Owner’s Manual

wikimedia commons                            license                    

Summer Kinard, a mother of autistic children and who is on the autism spectrum herself, wrote a series of four posts offering practical insights on living with and relating to persons on the autism spectrum.   

These posts cover . . . (1) regulating the home for the appropriate amount of sensory input; . . . .  . (2) providing tools for simplifying (reducing) cognitive input so that attention will be focused on the necessary and important things in an autistic person’s life; (3) the ordering and processing of sensory input in the right order – feelings, images, and then thinking and language; (4) dealing with autistic child’s “back to school” struggles.
