Dear Noah:

Well I am sitting here and it is about 2:00 p.m. You are busy recording video clips...something you LOVE to do lately. You are still in the mood to NOT do anything or go anywhere outside the house. So unlike your normal self.

So we have been making do with that I guess. I wonder how long it will last. I posted some messages online in a support group about this and they all say they have experienced it with their autistic kids too from time to time. That you have just realized that certain social situations and things in your environment overload your sensory system (which we knew). That you have to learn how to protect yourself, adapt to the situations and recover.

Now the question is: How in the world do you do that?

That is what autism is all about. If you could tune out things in your environment that distract you from coping and just being in our world you would not be considered autistic.

I will be anxiously awaiting any feedback from the group on this.

Mommy loves you regardless!
