The next installment of Kadambari’s blog goes into the issues with Kyra’s sleeping and the usage of a Rajasthani tent that has allowed her to create her own little fiefdom. It provides her a safe dark place to play but know that she is not far from the safety of her parents who are still in the family room. While she does still suffer from sleep on set and sleep maintenance insomnia at least with the tent she is able to wake up in the middle of the night and have her zone where she is able to play and eventually fall back to sleep. Or so we hope.
Normally light sensitivity works in conjunction with poor eye sight with children that have autism but Kyra like everything else is different, she seems to have very good sight but also suffers from this light sensitivity which the tent definitely helps with as well.
All the medicines are a concern but the insomnia is more of a concern.
