do you know... i really dont know - but i DO KNOW that it affects NT kids as well. DH (ICT teacher) can always tell when the moons coming to 'full' - the kids at school really do start going a bit 'loopy' (sorry if that term offends anyone, but cant think of a better one!) or 'loony' (luny) I suppose (taken from the word 'lunatic' from 'lune' meaning moon. So 'those' people have known about the strange effects for years!) ANyhoo... the kids tend to go all hyper and bouncy, very emotional (flip-flopping from one extreme to the other), fidgety, on edge, and just ermm a bit peculiar!
Strangely it's my ds2(NT) who has gone a bit whacky the last few days. Despite being awful last time ds1(ASD) has been ok. I think maybe it's cos the last one coincided with the summer hols and things were all up in the air already. The last one was awful here, all three were leaping off sofas in a very feral way!
