Finding a Mask That Works for My Son With Autism

How is this going to work for my son? That was my first thought when I heard the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendation that everyone wear a mask to stop the spread of COVID-19.

My 10-year-old son is autistic and sensory seeking. Not a moment of any day passes where I don’t find him brushing things across his face or putting them into his mouth to feel them.

Toys, zip pulls and his fingers are among his favorites. Sometimes he struggles with his sensory processing issues and doesn’t like the way things feel.
