Don't mock the headphones

Headphones - it's how we roll!
Princess triplet, like many kids with autism, find the 4th of July challenging because of sensory issues. Today's parade was enjoyable because her headphones provided a barrier at the beginning until she could get used to all the stimulation.

If you see a kiddo today with headphones on, don't mock it. This may be the only way that family can enjoy a "typical" American holiday.

And fireworks? We'll try them tonight and hopefully they'll go better than last year for Princess. Since we only have one set of headphones right now, Princess, who is far more sensory defensive than Angel triplet, will get them tonight. Hopefully Angel will find the visual interest so intriguing that she may be able to block out the auditory onslaught.

Happy 4th of July!
