Identifying Sensory Issues vs. Challenging Behaviors in Autistic Children | Organization for Autism Research 06/04/2024

Great article about differentiating between sensory issues and challenging behaviors…

Identifying Sensory Issues vs. Challenging Behaviors in Autistic Children | Organization for Autism Research As an educator, I would often encounter students who presented challenging behaviors in the classroom.

Never let anyone make you feel “less than”… As an adult, this message resonates with me. I wish more people taught their kids this life changing lesson.

Spread the word. Tell your kids. Tell your students. Tell yourself. ❤️

A father said to his daughter “You have graduated with honors, here is a car I bought many years ago. It is pretty old now. But before I give it to you, take it to the used car lot downtown and tell them I want to sell it and see how much they offer you for it.”

The daughter went to the used car lot, returned to her father and said, “They offered me $1,000 because the said it looks pretty worn out.”

The father said, now “Take it to the pawn shop.” The daughter went to the pawn shop, returned to her father and said, ”The pawn shop offered only $100 because it is an old car.”

The father asked his daughter to go to a car club now and show them the car. The daughter then took the car to the club, returned and told her father,” Some people in the club offered $100,000 for it because “it's an iconic car and sought by many collectors.”

Now the father said this to his daughter, “The right place values you the right way,” If you are not valued, do not be angry, it means you are in the wrong place. Those who know your value are those who appreciate you....

Never stay in a place where no one sees your value.
