Time To Get Out Of The Pool.....

A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

My 13 year old son is nonverbal and loves going to the pool. However he doesn't like to leave the pool when it's time. That ends in a meltdown or us staying until he is ready to go. Does anyone have any tips on getting a kid out of the pool and ending the activity of swimming after a couple or three hours without getting a big meltdown reaction?

It Seems Like Everything He Experiences, No Matter How Long Ago, Happened Just Now.

A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

Today, I installed a new app on his tablet, something we've done dozens of times. He got extremely upset and it took him about an hour to move on. He was upset because the new app wasn't wrapped up like a present. Two years ago, on his old Android tablet, which looks nothing like his current one, the security software would make a newly installed apps icon look like a present. Once you clicked on it, the present would explode, become the real app icon and then open. His current iPad never had… read more

A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

My daughter doesn’t want to go out to eat Mother’s Day lunch. She’s playing with her Lego and won’t get ready for the day. She wants to get the food and bring it home to eat it.

She took her iPad and headphones. That usually works.

Why Does My Daughter Get Overwhelmed And Cry When I Tell Her Of Things Ahead Of Time?

A MyAutismTeam Member asked a question 💭

My daughter is excited about reading night at school tonight. Yesterday I told her that I was getting her tested for a problem with her handwriting in June and she started crying. I asked her why and she just says there’s a lot of things going on. And that she has counseling at school next Week. And just a lot of things coming up that she doesn’t really have to worry about right now and I told her that. I asked her why she was obsessed. She didn’t know. But she calmed down and said that she was… read more

She also gets anxious when I ask her to pick up things, put away her dishes, clean her room, or do her homework. Or when I do anything to correct her, like tell her to work on writing her u and 4.
