Sensory issues and autism: an insider’s guide

by Paul Isaacs


The main sensory difficulties I faced with autism and how they affect my everyday life


As a child, I was non-verbal and I didn’t gain functional speech until the age of seven or eight. I was diagnosed with autism at the age of 24, in 2010.


It is becoming more widely recognised that autistic children and adults are challenged by sensory and information processing difficulties. The following is a summary of some of these issues and how I am affected by them. This is crucial information for educators because autistic children are not able to learn unless their sensory processing issues are properly appreciated and addressed.
