Steph from Stephs2Girls - A misleading term as it's presumably meant to cover those with a higher IQ, but that doesn't mean they are any more able to cope easily in society. In some cases, it can mean less support is given....
Tina from Mothergeek - There's plenty of it, despite the challenges Autism adds to our lives.
Jeannette from AutismMumma - When my children are happy, we're all happy.
Tina from Mothergeek - the Bain of my life! Cutting, washing and brushing Sam's hair all cause sensory overload for him, and raised blood pressure for me!
Jeannette from AutismMumma - Cutting it is a nightmare for both T and D, they wriggle and squirm and it's horrible every time. Tempting to use a pudding bowl to cut around!! Hair for me too, all the stress associated with SN has really made mine suffer.
Rachel from Parenting the PDA Way - The impacts on general health and visits to health care professionals. Doctors trips are pretty difficult here.
Emma Murphy from Emma4facs- Kids really in pain with this at the minute, hypermobility syndrome is a condition that features joints that easily move beyond the normal range expected for a particular joint.

Rachel from Dragonriko - The place where our kids (and us) feel safest. I agree with this one, my gang are definitely home birds.
Rachel from Dragonriko- They might take more planning and we might be more selective on where we go but everyone still loves a good holiday.
Hyper & Hypo sensitivity
Ann from Rainbows are too beautiful - Common in some ASD children, Ann has a fab post all about it and she explains it wonderfully. Hyper - What Else?

Do you have anything else you would add for H then just leave me a comment below? Make sure you come back in a fortnight for I is for.....
