Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
When ASD children have a more normal experience of the sensory world they can achieve better participation and relief from isolation.Autism and sensory processing When you are raising a child with autism, you search for anything that can help them to adjust and connect better to their environment. Raising special needs children is a very demanding task putting parents and families under a lot of additional stress. Finding ways to support your child to normalise their sensory reception is essential, and anything that can make this process easier will be a great support to your life. Autism is a condition which alters a child’s experience of sensory stimuli and relationships. It often causes children to become emotionally isolated from the world around them. Aspergers syndrome is a term used for higher functioning autism, meaning the symptoms are milder and the child functions well or above average in many areas of life, while still having certain abnormalities in their way of relating to others. A definite cause of autism or Aspergers syndrome is not known, but a contributing factor is believed to be distortion in the reception of sensory information. Many children on the autism spectrum exhibit extreme sensitivity to noise. Some frequencies are actually painful for them to hear. Dr Tomatis suggests that in order to shut out painful sounds or other unwanted stimuli the child closes down the hearing mechanism so that certain sounds cannot penetrate the consciousness. On a physiological level, this closing off of the ear is achieved by a relaxation of the muscles of the middle ear. Over time, these muscles lose their tonicity. Sounds are then imprecisely perceived, and as a result, incorrectly analysed. Tomatis believes that the reluctance to communicate in children with autism results from the closing off of their being to auditory input. Although they may understand what is said to them, they have tuned out many of the frequencies in the sound and have thus tuned out the emotional content of the message.
