Going to the dentist
I am very interested to hear about parents' experiences of taking their children with autism and learning difficulties to the dentist. I find it really stressful (even though my son is now 13) and he can get very lively and destructive in the dentists' surgery these days which is a handful! I am going to be doing some research on individual experiences so would like to hear from you about any difficulties you have had but also if anything has helped you to manage the dental visit - apps, social stories, your own visual schedules, existing story books etc.
