Re: Aspergers syndrome
I am a neurovariant and have SID/SPD. The problem with us neurovariants is that there is no set of rules for us as two persons witih SID, autism, ODD, ADD, etc can react differently.
First off you have to know her loves, quirks, and limitations. For sound sensitivity ear muffs and ear plugs help as well as noise dampening listening devices. For some autistic kids a McClaren stroller helps the kid hide in a quiet place. For younger runners a harness works well. For food related stuff you can contact WDW to handle SID related issues, pickyness, and special diets.
Busy work is important for neurovariants. Busy minds get into trouble but when the mind has games, puzzles, chew toys, treats, and other things to keep the person occupied then that person tends to do better in public. I demolish plastic straws in restaurants so that I can cope with stress and nerves. I seen a kid who had a toy and he was happy with it and did not notice the bustle around him.
There is a GAC for austim if she needs that to help avoid waiting.
Disney parks are magical and I have seen breakthoughs reported by parents.

Figment and Gurgi; chocolate and coffee; and my family. I like to cook, shop, VMK, ToonTown and sweepstaking. Trivia lover but memory not good enough.
