POSITIVE APPROACHES

Most people with ASD have a variety of sensory differences which can make them hypersensitive, hyposensitive or even a mixture of both. 


Such differences make many ordinary situations difficult to understand & leave them in a world which seems chaotic and frightening.

Sensory differences affect every aspect of their lives causing frustration, anxiety and stress.

The sensory differences can also interfere with:

* the development of social relationships

* communication, speech and comprehension

* concentration and learning

* short term memory

Such problems mean that the child with ASD has to work much harder than their peers in order to understand and complete his/her schoolwork.
