Well with most metal the structure is actually pretty organized.....so there is a lot of repetition of similar parts of the song, it's kind of hard to explain but its like the structure of it is organized in such a way it can be calming even though its a more aggressive style of music. If that makes...

the strange part is that I was not tolerating regular household sounds at the time--talking, kids singing, people asking me questions, faucet running...on the verge of a meltdown. I wouldn't think that heavy metal would be useful under the circumstances! Maybe it worked liked giving stimulants (rita...

It could be that the music acts as a counter irritant. Life is overwhelming you so the annoying angry metal either expresses your feelings, or alternatively, you get angry at the music itsself so it takes your mind off the overwhelming stuff in your environment so youre able to focus on a task. Kin...

was thinking that maybe it was the really strong drum beat that focused me. It's really not usually my genre of choice.

Just realized the strangest thing I was in complete overload mode this evening. Holding my ears and rocking a bit from simple noises. I needed to complete some computer work, so I sat down, put on headphones, and found that the only music that didn't annoy me was heavy metal. This music soothed me. ...

For me, too much sensory input of any kind will do it. It makes me feel physically sick (pretty sure it plays games with my blood pressure). I expect to have to crash after just a pleasurable trip into the city, even without any interaction. Total silence fixes it, like an hour or two of total silen...

walking. I live in an area where I can go for a walk by myself at night
the combination of air and exercise is awesome!
I am also probably on the spectrum, so after a day of constant sensory input from my kids, I often feel physically sick.. This helps.

great links Eureka, thanks! @audball--this is the advantage of homeschooling your DD! Can't expect much personalized attention in a class of 31, even with the most well-meaning teacher. My daughter manages well enough to not receive special services, but when a bright child receives 70's, it's very ...

thanks audball you gave some great advice She's in a traditional classroom, homeschooling isn't an option for us. You're right--she learns very well independently. She taught herself to read, and when motivated can teach herself almost anything....which makes her school performance puzzling. Sitting...

My fourth grader has trouble understanding questions, and directions if not entirely direct. As she gets older, it's becoming more of an issue in completing assignments. Her teacher sees it as a reading comprehension problem. Her evaluation said otherwise-she doesn't have a problem with reading comp...

There's some truth to that---I am proud of her sense of decency. Problem is that she's likely to be at odds with her surroundings if she doesn't understand the dynamics of the authority figure relationship. We had the same situation with her older sister, who has since developed more extreme issues ...

My fourth grader came home upset from school yesterday. The class had been collectively punished for the rowdiness of several classmates. There are around 30 kids in her class. She was not one of the troublemakers, she never is. But for all her aspieness, she hates what she sees as social injustice....

what I also find interesting is that my daughters will be quick to point out each others' misunderstandings without seeing their own: Me (on the phone with DD3): Please put the ((whatever)) on top of the fridge DD3: that's impossible Me: Why?
