Re: autism and new babies

Be cautious about the noise level from the crying of the babies and how it is affecting your nephew. Sound sensitivity is very common - maybe consider some sort of white sound machine for his room to drown out the sound of the crying.

This plus the change in the dynamic of the household. Everyone should keep a close watch on his anxiety level and I would say also watch him around the babies as he is not used to their presence.
