So many questions on this sense over the last few days.
Within the human body lies an important sensory system called interoception. Interoception enables us to experience essential feelings such as hunger, fullness, thirst, itch, pain, body temperature, nausea, need for the bathroom, tickle, physical exertion and sexual arousal. Additionally, interoception allows us to feel our emotions.
As with other sensory systems, the interoceptive system can be impacted in individuals with autism. 📸 @starinstitute

I've seen my son struggle with friendships for years. Growing up non verbal and pretty much in his on world friendships were never really an issue, neither was bullying. People left him alone and he didn't appear too interested in them anyway.
Fast forward to secondary school where by then he was verbal (speech came about age 7 although mainly echolalia at the time) he had definitely escaped from his cocoon and ready to explore the world only by this time kids had written him off as 'weird'. We changed schools to escape the bullying only to suffer the same fate... It was extremely hard watching him son knowing I could do nothing about it. I couldn't make kids like him or give him a chance and I couldn't make friends for him, as hard as it was (and still is to accept) I had to let him figure this out on his own.
This morning hearing him call a girl on the phone, I felt a sudden gush of relief. The conversation lasted only a few minutes but she was pleasant and thanked him for his call wishing her a good weekend. Just the other day he was on the phone to a kid exchanging PS4 ID's so they could play fortnight online.
I can't tell you how happy my h art feels when I witness these moments. I've dried so many years, cussed out 1 too many kids and honestly I'm exhausted, we both are. Thank God for amazing charities like @keenlondon, @laburnumboatclub and others that facilitate opportunities for kids like my son to make healthy and positive friendships in spaces where they can be themselves.
He's getting there, in fact he's already there, it's the world and their shitbag kids that need to change!

Yenidoğanın görüşü yetişkininkinden çok daha farklıdır.
Bebeğin dünyaya geldiği ilk zamanlarda görmeyi kontrol eden retinası ile beyindeki sinir hücreleri tam olarak gelişmediğinden görüşü bulanıktır, sadece siyah, beyaz ve gri tonlarında görür. Dünyaya gelirken bebeğin en zayıf duyusu olan görme duyusunu desteklemek için gelişimine uygun araçlar kullanmak bu yüzden çok önemlidir.

Sanserom er ikke bare en flott måte å introdusere praktiske læringsopplevelser ... de er en fin måte å få elevene til å smile også! 💛
Mange barn med spesielle behov ser verden med fingertuppene. De liker å gjøre og føle aktiviteter. Sanserom lar dem gjøre alt dette og mer mens de tar opp følgende områder med sansestimulering: vestibulær, visuell, lukt, propriosepsjon, taktil og auditiv.
Sensory Benefits For People with Autism:
Balance and spatial orientation are experienced through the vestibular sense organs. These are located inside the inner ear and are stimulated through direction change, incline, and speed. Riding a horse helps liven these sensory preceptors, which helps make therapy exciting and motivates your child to continue to be engaged.
My smile says it all 😁💯
Some may see them as differently abled but we see them as specially abled.
This fella here, for an example is a superb dancer who had been a spectacle at @onestage_official Live concert last year 🕺🖤
Those who spend time with them realise how much happiness is left unexperienced in this world. It's a pure joy to be with these amazing souls💙
⚫Özel Eğitimde Bireysel Öğrenme Farklılıkları
Öğrenme sürecinde farklılık yaratan pek çok değişken mevcuttur. Öğrenme
ortamı, öğretmenin bilgi ve becerileri, izlenilen müfredat, kullanılan materyaller
bunların bazıları olarak sıralanabilir. Bu değişkenlerin en önemlilerinden bir tanesi,
belki de en önemlisi öğrenenin sürece yaptığı katkıdır. Bu noktada, öğrenenin kim
olduğu, ne tür öğrenme ihtiyaçlarına sahip olduğu, öğrenme stilleri, motivasyonu,
öğrenirken kullandığı stratejiler, kişilik özellikleri gibi pek çok parametre öğrenenler
arasındaki akademik başarı farklılıklarını doğuran temel etkenlerdir ve öğrenme
sürecini en yakından planlayıp, düzenleyen ve öğrenme çıktılarını kontrol eden
öğretmenlerin bu güçlü bireysel farklılıklar hakkında bilgi sahibi olmaları ve onları
öğrencinin öğrenme potansiyelini geliştirecek şekilde öğrenen lehinde
kullanabilmeleri bağlamında büyük önem taşımaktadır.

Wild friday night, me, myself & I...💁♀️✌
After the excitement of watching Love Island and the dumping, i jumped into bed with a cuppa, my favourite mug and a book.⠀
I grabbed this book from the library a week ago whilst dealing with olly having a melt down. I dont believe there is a cure for autism, it is what it is 💁♀️ ⠀
But I've read half of this book now and theres alot of fascinating information in there, that's opened my eyes up alot. I'm not autistic, I didnt even know what autism was before I had olly. So I still learn every single day with him about it. ⠀
You need to read this book with your eyes wide open as like I said, I dont believe there is a cure for it. But the way it explains some behaviours of autism is interesting and makes you think wow.. is that really how they feel?! ⠀
But the point in this post is, us mummas need to take a time out at times. Self care and all that larky. It was actually so nice to jump into bed early ish, with a cuppa and a book. Wind down before bed. ⠀
Wild friday nights down the pub or a nightclub are pretty much over for me. Now being on my own with the boys I dont get time to do that. So this is what's happened with my friday nights.. and you know what, I wouldnt change it for the world ❤⠀
I've asked my daughter to help me with the right lighting setup before a photo session ❤️ My Honey🧸

Today is my brothers birthday and the first person in my family to be diagnosed as autistic, when he was in his twenties. When I realised my son was also autistic I wanted to stop the train crash of failures my brother experienced as a child and young adult happening to my son.
Unfortunately although I did (after years of fighting) get him a much early diagnoses and was therefore able to understand his needs so much better, little meaningful has really changed in the school system. All but the most visibly disabled children are left to struggle alone or with inadequate or the wrong support, then excluded or pushed out when they can’t cope it seems.
We may be outside of the system now but I will continue to fight for change in the name of my brother, my son and all the Autistic children and adults that get failed by the system in a multitude of ways every year. #autism#PDA#SEND#education#family#autisticrights
Last night was a tiring night balancing Lizzi's needs. After a draining couple of hours for us with tears, misunderstandings and cuddles we are going to somewhere near Todmorden for her to play football and for me to cheer her on. Sharing this because sometimes I don't share how hard it is to watch my daughter meltdown over what appears to be the silliest of reasons. Each time I have to work out what the root is and respond without ever having any support. That support is slowly coming this year in the help of Stars.
This morning she woke up ,have me a cuddle and said sorry.
I love my clever, articulate young lady so much. Will never stop encouraging you or fighting for you to survive this minefield called life.
Today we are off to play football/ watch football. Today is a new day. A fresh start and we will put the stresses of last night behind her.
This is a cause massively close to my heart ... so I’ve stepped up to Walk for autism. I’ll be walking 10,000 steps a day for 8 days and fundraising to help change the lives of people on the autism spectrum. Help make my steps count and support my efforts by donating now. Any amount, big or small, will get us one step closer towards a world where no-one on the autism spectrum is left behind 👣

prerana special school malakpet for
Having seen the plight of the Parents for their children in terms of guidance and affordability, the founders felt the need for dedicated services, to educate the parents about their role for their children and to consider affordability. In fact, our aim is to reach the poorest of the poor.
Prerana Special School, is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, established under the management of Prerana Welfare Society to provide dedicated services to the children with Autism, Mental Retardation, Cerebral Palsy and Physical Disabilities.The School has made a humble beginning with 4 children and its academic year has started in April, 2004, with the sole aim of providing dedicated services to the mentally and Physically Challenged Children.
are mainly depending upon philanthropists and well-wishers for financial support. We are developing vocational units, with the aim to generate resources to meet the general maintenance of the school.

Vi har påbörjat en resa tillsammans med denna pojke som vi aldrig hade kunnat ana. Han har förändrat hela vårt liv och hur vi ser på denna värld 😍
Folk brukar fråga mig om jag inte blir ledsen när jag läser om Louie och hans autism. Jag blir absolut inte ledsen, för tänk er själva: vad vill föräldrar mest av allt i hela världen? Jo, att deras barn ska vara lyckliga. Ärligt talat är det svårt att finna ett lyckligare barn än Louie. Hur kan jag då vara ledsen? Han är ju vårt lilla solsken ☀
Spela roll om han aldrig kommer kunna prata. Spela roll om han aldrig kommer kunna klara sig själv. Spela roll om han aldrig kommer kunna gå i en vanlig skola, ha ett vanligt jobb, bli pappa eller ha en partner. Det enda jag önskar min son är förmågan att kunna förmedla sina känslor och tankar på något sätt. Så att han får möjlighet att påverka sitt egna liv. Jag är säker på att vi kommer att komma dit, men hur - det vet jag inte ännu 🤷🏼♀️
Men om han fortsätter att vara ens hälften så glad på vägen, så kommer han att få ett väldigt bra liv. Det är jag övertygad om. Grattis Louie på 3 årsdagen. Och grattis till oss som fick just dig. Vi drog den högsta lottovinsten 🎉

Another old-but-gold repost in case you missed it before. In 2009 Kate Winslet sent her favourite beaten-up trilby to as many well-known people as she could track down, with these instructions: ‘Put the hat on. Take a portrait. Think about the fact that many individuals with nonverbal autism have never been able to communicate. Now express something that’s important to you.’ The photos and quotes were published in a 2012 book, ‘The Golden Hat: Talking Back to Autism’, benefitting the Golden Hat Foundation.
Cillian Murphy was on the set of Inception at the time. Those are Robert Fischer’s braces! This selfie and that very fitting Beatles song title/quote are his contributions to the book. Other Inception stars - @leonardodicaprio@marioncotillard@hitrecordjoe, Ken Watanabe, and Sir Michael Caine - also feature in the book.
