"Holy Crap"-eteria, An Aspie Poem
By ChristinaHeafne... on January 21, 2013
Those that know a school aged kid on the spectrum probably know how overstimulating the school cafeteria can be. Spectrum-y kids tend to have heightened senses, especially hearing, smell and sight, which makes a busy place like the lunchroom even more annoying to them than the average joe. I mean, really-- do you like to eat in there?! The cafeteria is particularly stressful for my Princess, and often leads to her imminent defeat on days when she is already having trouble behaving at school. I thought I'd give you a little insight about how it feels to be an Aspie in the cafeteria, based on my Princess's plethora of complaints about eating lunch in there. :)
I walk into the lunchroom
and what smacks me in the face?
A wall of noise, bright lights, loud boys--
You want me to do what in this place?!!!
