Autism: Sensory Overloaded by Emotions

1 rating

Summary

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by a sensual experience? Imagine magnifying that times 100. That is reality for many on the autism spectrum. This book talks about how people with autism balance sensory input issues with socializing and following unwritten social rules in the real world. The author examines how people with autism have physical and emotional sensory experiences throughout their life.  Travis explains how physical sensations interfere with his ability to process social situations. He wonders if autism is not more of a sensory disorder than it is a social disorder. Is it possible that sensory experiences interfere with the ability to conceptualize and interpret social situations? You will learn the author's opinion on this subject as well as begin to learn how he balances sensory input issues with following the unwritten social rules of the world.  Travis explains how he feels overwhelmed sensory wise by other people's emotions. He feels other people's emotions sometimes more than his own. This can cause him to overreact in responding to the emotions of his friends. Sometimes Travis' response to comfort someone is over the top to them because he is experiencing their emotion more magnified or dramatic than they are. Emotions are all about context. Emotions are also a spectrum, just like autism. There can be high-functioning and low-functioning emotions. It is important to understand the context of each emotion. Another person must match the context of your emotional response and then match that context with your social response.  Travis tells how he tries to learn to match context functioning levels of his friends' emotions with his in this informative book. If someone with autism seems socially awkward, it may be that they are having a sensory input experience that is preventing them from being proper socially. Often the sensory overload shuts down the social part of the brain, preventing people with autism from accessing skills that they might have.

DIY Natural Melt and Pour Soap Crafting

Summary

DIY Natural Melt and Pour Soap Crafting Ultimate Guide to Making & Selling Colorful Natural Soaps  Paraben, Sulfate and Triclosan are some of the ingredients in commercial soap that I never questioned until I began making soap at home. That’s when my curiosity got the best of me. After finding just these three, I wanted to call a truce to look for dangerous additives in what I used (and worse yet, my children used) to clean. That’s when I thought I found the fourth one. Fragrance! How in the world could something that sounds as harmless as fragrance possibly damage your skin? How wrong I was. The definition of fragrance was a far cry in meaning than the one on the soap label. I began making soap because it was a fun hobby I could share with my children. I continued because it morphed into a successful small business. But I’m now compelled to continue knowing that I’m contributing to the health of my family. Before we get into the actual soap making, I do share my findings about just these four potentially harmful ingredients found in too many soaps and body washes. I am sure you will be shocked to read it.
