Autism Speaks-Sensory Integration Dysfunction

A link of information on Autism, and to encourage those who deal with it in more intensity.

Sensory Integration Dysfunction is what our DD was diagnosed with. There are some aspects of it where she has improved some, and others that haven't. Thankfully what we deal with pales in comparison to others. However, she needs lots of understanding and encouragement. Dealing with clothes and shoes that feel ok to her are still a huge challenge. She isn't trying to be difficult, it is a real stress for her. The occupational therapist was a huge asset.

This is a helpful site on awareness for Autism in all forms. :)
