The unwritten rules of dinner time

Christmas, scripting explained … and love for the postie

We chat about “scripting”, the rules of eating that no one tells you about, and avoiding crunchy food. This all comes before an email from a postman sparks lots of happy stimming.

Emily from the blog ‘21 And Sensory’ explains how her autism diagnosis was given to her in a really positive way and on what occasions she uses the sunflower lanyard to show she has a hidden impairment.

We finish with tips for how to do Christmas in a helpful way for the autistic person in your life.

With Robyn Steward, Jamie Knight, Henry and Lion.
