Eating continues to be the most difficult sensory task for this woman on the autism spectrum.
To expand my palate, my husband and I take an approach very similar to the “food chaining” discussed by Primeau at Aspergers101.
It takes time for me to get used to an unfamiliar food, and it requires considerable fortitude to be willing to try new things. An experience that is already fraught with challenges on the basis of unfamiliar or unpleasant tastes or textures is further burdened by past experiences and prevalent social attitudes.

Here’s something I’d love to duplicate in the Bellview Elementary School library — customized for our students’ reading preferences — when school resumes this fall.
Created by Julie Wood and showcased at Library Displays, this is a John Green read-alike display, “relevant to the current movie release of ‘The Fault in Our Stars.’”
In her description of the display, Wood discusses design motifs that played off the color scheme and cloud motif on the original book jacket art.
The blog administrator pairs Wood’s display with a link to a Buzzfeed compilation by Arielle Calderon, “17 Books to Read if You Liked ‘The Fault in Our Stars.’”
Looking ahead with fall “Teen Crafternoon” ideas for the Ashland Branch Library teen department and Jackson County Library Services: How about a carrying pouch for a hand-held device?
