As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Follow my blog as I share my life and my experiences as a person who loves someone with autism.

Head, and shoulders, knees, and toes

Head and shoulders, knees, and toes isn’t only a song, but they are also areas that Bryce loves to be touched and squeezed. He sits on Daniel’s lap laughing and asks “tickle knee, tickle knee.” It’s not necessarily because he is ticklish there, but because he loves the sensation, the feeling that it gives him.

The pressure is very soothing for him and he is very sensitive to that feeling on his head, shoulders, knees, and toes. Other sensory issues Bryce has with touch is he doesn’t like people touching his belly, and despises getting his finger nails and toe nails trimmed. After trimming his nails, he refuses to use his hands unless it’s completely necessary because it just bothers him so much.

We’re pretty lucky though that he has such minor, and manageable sensory issues.

Thanks for reading,
