Overcoming Autism's Sensory Struggles: Finding The Right Vitamins
If you were involved in a minor car crash, or over-did your workout at the gym, you're probably suffering from sore muscles.

Transient ischemic attacks (TIA) are more commonly known as mini strokes, but don't let the nickname fool you. While the symptoms of a TIA subside within five minutes, heed their occurrence as a warning to seek emergency care at once. Find out what you need to know about a TIA so that you can act quickly if you or a loved one experiences the sudden onset of its symptoms.
What Is a TIA?
Spring brings more than warm weather and beautiful flowers. It may also trigger allergies in some people. If you are one of the many people who suffer from allergies, you may dread it when spring starts. However, if you make a few lifestyle changes, you can reduce your symptoms and feel better. Here are five helpful tips for dealing with springtime allergies:
Try to Stay Indoors
If you are able, try to stay indoors in the mornings when pollen counts are the highest.
If you're the main caregiver of a disabled adult child who is unable to perform many of the activities of daily living on his or her own, you may find yourself dreading bath time. Even if your child is relatively calm and compliant, leaning over the edge of a bathtub or stretching to rinse his or her hair can be tough. Fortunately, there are some tub and shower options that can be installed at a relatively low cost while saving you time, hassle, and sanity.
Hand pain can be debilitating and prevent you from doing normal daily tasks such as typing, texting, and cleaning. This can be contributed to stiffness and swelling of the joints, which diminish the way you normally use your hands, even when it comes to buttoning clothes. Typically, hand pain is caused by carpal tunnel or osteoarthritis, which is the weakening of cartilage between your finger joints. In addition, hand pain may also be caused by nerve pain, a tingling feeling when pressure is applied to the wrist.
Having a child on the autism spectrum poses all kinds of unique challenges that can sometimes be very difficult. The sensory issues that often accompany spectrum disorders can mean that even everyday things like taking vitamins may be a serious struggle. For my son, it's both texture and taste that pose challenges for him, which made finding a vitamin supplement very difficult. After experimenting with many different brands, styles, and flavors, I have found what does and doesn't work for various sensory issues that he has. I've created this site to share our experiences in the hopes that it might help other parents with kids on the spectrum to find a vitamin their child will take.
