So I’ve been reading the book ten things every child with autism wishes you knew. And I read the chapter on sensory overload and it talked about visual and tactile sensory and it’s making me believe that’s why I have to put on deodorant over and over again numerous times. Because I need to wear and put soft stuff on me so the more deodorant I put on the softer it is on me and it also has a more noticeable smell and the deodorant is noticeable and I can see it. And it helps me to know that I did put the deodorant on because if I can’t see or if it isn’t a strong enough smell I think that I didn’t put it on. Any suggestions for decreasing the number of times I put it on?
