Children and Adults on the Spectrum can have challenges with temperature regulation.  

Many people with an ASD are unable to set their internal thermometer at a comfort zone and can feel hot all the time even in cold weather or cold all the time even when it is warm. 

An autistic child can have a body that is unable to regulate cold AND heat, which also means that he/she can’t feel that they are  getting dangerously sunburned or that he/she's on the verge of dehydration or even heat exhaustion.

Some children with autism have anhidrosis, which is the inability to sweat. Parents and caregivers need to take special precautions to prevent a heat emergency in these cases, such as spraying the child’s skin with water when outside, doubling up on fluids, and careful monitoring of the child’s internal temperature.

Thermoregulation difficulties often accompany Asperger’s, SPD, Autism, ADHD, and Sensory Processing Disorders. Effective behavioral control of temperature depends on both an intact sensory-motor system and an ability to communicate perceptions.

These Instant Cooling Towels can be effective in relieving the discomfort that comes from overheating, hot flashes, night sweats, sunburns and fevers.
