My name is Emily, I’m 25 and I have Sensory Processing Disorder also known and referred to as SPD and I am autistic. I am a Graphic Designer, Illustrator and Blogger. 

My blog and Instagram page aim to bring people everywhere together to discuss their sensory problems and how they cope with their everyday lives. I want it to be recognised that sensory problems aren’t something children necessarily grow out of but learn to deal with for the rest of their lives. I like to post my own sensory illustrations online :)

    @dolfrog - Whilst it's great to give advice, I would suggest that rather than giving links, if they are not specific to the individual, & you can't know their medical history, it's unwise to give them.
    Your research paper collections are links to a medical database (PubMed)..... they are not yours (other than that you have kept links to them), as they are in the public domain, which anyone can view if they wish. If they have a good understanding of medical literature, then they can perform their own (specific) searches instead. A person needs to be aware of which journals, & authors are creditworthy. Reading a selection of papers on any given subject I fear may prove unhelpful in my opinion, if this is not taken into account.

    Well They are links to my PubMed research paper collections, to research papers i have read over the years while researching a wide range of topics.
    And there are a wide range of issues which can be part of any single condition which is best described reading multiple research papers on each subject, which may affect any single individual with any diagnosis, and each individual needs to have a better understanding of ther issues which may be affecting them.
