Windy Weather

Does your Aspergerchild seem irritated and wound up in windy weather? It's a common phenomena in children with Aspergers and Autism, and is caused from the Sensory problems they experience.

The feeling of the wind on their skin and through their hair is constant stimuli, and we know that sensory stimuli is cumulative, so by the afternoon or evening our Asperger children wll have very short fuses - beware of meltdowns. As parents we can do many seemingly impossible things for our children, but sadly, controlling the weather isn't one of them. However, being aware of the extra bother windy days cause your child can be the difference between a managable windy day, and an out-of-control windy day. Enjoy the journey!
