People, both autistics and neurotypicals, are asking sometimes how to manage autism. And my response is: you don’t. Autism is who you are, you can’t change it. You can only manage the traits.
How? By recognising patterns, creating procedures for desired behaviour and by changing the game you’re playing to infinite one. Let me know if you come up with some more.
Patterns and procedures are what we’re good at so focus on that to manage areas where you’re lacking. And the game is what we play anyway, so let’s choose the correct one. I personally work at the moment on creating procedure for not eating when not hungry. I’ll tell you more about it a bit later but let’s get excited already as I think it may actually work!
