Asperger Syndrome and Sensory Issues
A common thread discussed by parents of children with Asperger's is Sensory Issues.
The children with Asperger's can have either Hyper- or Hypo-sensitivity. Some children even express the sensory issues from birth. The sensory issues can be specific to one sense or across several senses.
Examples of Hypersensitivity
Sight: Bothered by bright lights
Sounds: Showing great discomfort to loud noises such as fireworks, movies, or parades. Or easily distracted by sounds.
Taste: Easily gags due to texture or tastes. A "picky" eater.
Touch: Does not like touch (especially when unexpected). May be sensitive to textures or different fabrics.
Smells: Avoids the meat aisle in the grocery store (too stinky). Detects odors that others may not even notice.
