From Dr. Kerry Magro – Speaker, Author & Autism Self-Advocate
Dear ER & medical professionals,
Growing up with autism I dealt with severe sensory challenges. Bright lights would hurt my eyes. Loud noises would either have me covering my ears or bolting away from the noises. There were plenty of meltdowns. These are all too common reactions for many of us on the spectrum. Experiences like going to a doctor and/or hospital can be scary for all children (and adults) but especially for someone like me who has autism.
