Behaviorally Fragile Autistic Persons (BFAPs) are autistic children, teens and adults who are HYPERSENSITIVE to the world around them. That means constipation, headaches, hunger, thirst, changes in weather, uncomfortable clothing, acute or chronic pain, a slight transition, a sudden loud noise, can trigger severe self-injurious behavioral meltdowns. Often, the BFAPS have medical issues like epilepsy, or sometimes sub-clinical epilepsy . This does NOT mean that epilepsy is the cause of the self-injurious behavior, but rather that epilepsy LOWERS the threshold to engage in self injurious behavior, making them more fragile or vulnerable to self-injury. This is why BFAPS need consistent compassionate care and specifically tailored interventions as per their unique needs. Improving their overall health is top priority. Love and kindness is essential. These are unique autistic people. They are extremely vulnerable to our fast paced, chaotic world, where so much of their pain is dismissed in the drive by world we live in. Open your eyes. Help them. They are calling out for help.
