"Hi I'm Emily, I am 27 and have Sensory Processing Disorder and I am Autistic. I am a Graphic Designer, Illustrator and Podcaster! This blog is UK based and aims to bring people everywhere together to discuss their sensory problems and how they cope with their everyday lives. I really want it to be recognised that sensory problems aren’t something children necessarily grow out of but learn to live with and adapt to for the rest of their lives."
"The podcast that makes you think twice about how you think."
"We are the UK's leading charity for people on the autism spectrum and their families. Since 1962, we have been providing support, guidance and advice, as well as campaigning for improved rights, services and opportunities to help create a society that works for autistic people."
"OAR has a ton of FREE resources for teachers and students. The Teacher’s Corner is filled with great tip for teachers. I happen to love The 6 Steps to Success: ASD. This resource is outstanding for inclusion! Every educator could benefit from reading it. The student section has great resources as well. There are activity workbooks for grades K-8, with a quiz afterward for students to show off their gained knowledge. There are additional resources for high school students, too. Check out their Kit for Kids for more. My favorite resource is the video What’s Up With Nick. I use this in my lesson for 1st and 2nd graders. This short 3 minute video is a great, quick explanation of autism and what it can look like at school. "
