This week on Sensory Matters Jenny chats to Claire Larkins whos son Tom is autistic and also completes in the National Gymnastics Team. This all came from him hanging from a door frame and a doctors suggestion.

Claire is an autism mum just like most of us and you’ll really relate to her story. Like everyone, they have good and bad days. Tom has always wanted sensory input and his sensory issues were very bad in school. As with lots of us, he has issues with food and that’s where his SPD was picked up at age 6. Claire has some amazing tips on food issues!

Being autistic really helps Tomas with his gymnastics because of the repetition. Tom dreams to be an Olympic gymnast or coach one day and I’m sure he will!
