Just when I find something that works it all goes bottoms up.
We had a routine, a goal, something to work towards, and now we are unable to do it.
It is the rules, it is health and safety, blah blah blah….., yes I know, you have to follow them.
I understand that, I respect that, I will do as I am told but…
…..BUT……part of me wants to scream and shout “IT WAS BLOODY WORKING!!!”
So many rules.
In a world with Autism we can’t always follow the rules.
People with Autism see the world differently and don’t always understand the reason for rules.
I know this will be the case when I tell my girl.
I am dreading it.
We will be back at square one.
I don’t want to be exempt from the rules just because my child has Autism.
I don’t want to draw attention to ourselves for getting ‘special treatment’….
….but I do, because it was working!
It is the first thing that has consistently worked.
It breaks my heart that I have to change.
I feel angry but it is unjustified; rules are rules.
Back to the drawing board, as is often the case with Autism.
