Guidelines: Sensory Processing & Sensitivities

This group focuses on Sensory Processing and Sensitivities. Guidelines for staying on topic:

1) The topic should be based on scenarios that can be encountered in the real world. Topics about imaginary scenarios and magical worlds are not relevant.

2) We recommend that, where possible, the topics discussed focus on the experiences of autistic people dealing with sensory processing related matters, as well as any efforts to help with these.

3) There may be overlaps between this topic and health/biomedical issues. If so, the mixed topic can be first be discussed in this group, and if the conclusion is inadequate, be brought over to the health/biomedical group for further discussion.


Participants are welcome to share their experiences when it is relevant to do so. Where possible (though not a must), you can help enhance the quality of the discussion by sharing something that you don’t usually hear from other works on autism or something that gives a twist to the ordinary.

If you must share a long essay or article, please upload it on a blog, website, Google Drive or another online service first, then share the link for us to read at our leisure.
