    Neurodiversity and body experiences

    Hi there, I'm new to this group, so I'll start by saying hello! It's nice to have found this community!

    I have a question about my son which maybe some of you might be able to help me with.

    My son is 8 and we're in the process of doing an ASD assessment with him. I strongly suspect that he's on the spectrum.

    One thing I'm trying to get my head around is the link between neurodiversity and the experience of your own body. It's hard to explain what I mean but my son is very afraid of his own bodily sensations. For example, he gets scared when he coughs or when he feels hungry. He also has a phobia of vomiting, and even something like belching can trigger an anxiety attack because it makes him scared that he's going to vomit.

    Recently he's started refusing to participate in sport at school because he's scared he's going to cough or vomit.

    I just wonder whether anyone has any experience with these sorts of sensations or advice about how to help him? #Autism #sensoryprocessing #Autistic #autismandthebody #neurodiverse #sensoryexperiences #FearOfVomiting
