I thought of a different dimension on your question. Your child might benefit from headphones in many settings, one important one is at school. With the prospect of this, though, arise further questions - Does the child have an IEP? Can headphones be recognized / protected by teachers/principal as a...

This is the sort of topic that could send me off on a long essay, but I'll try and limit myself to the essentials. I was diagnosed as an adult, and headphones are my most important accommodation. As far as the technology goes, I can confirm the extra benefit of a flagship model outweighs the cost, a...

Sorry to hear it, that sounds horrible. The main problem I'm hearing is a lack of consideration for how your sensitivities are triggered and a lack of emphasis on reducing those stressors, getting accommodations in place and building sources of resiliency against them. If that seems to fit, you can ...

Check if it helps to re-orient the router, because signal strength can be stronger in some directions. Look for any metallic objects between the router and the area with the coverage problem, see if you can move it to side-step those. Buying a fancier router might help with range, but it's hard to b...

Good on you for looking into it. I haven't had such a diagnosis but I've had to learn a bit about BPD. I hardly have to suggest that you keep exploring ASD, surely you'll find some helpful stuff there. I've seen a lot of those stories about misdiagnosis as well. I recommend considering it from a sta...

I think, to advance your thinking, it's important to consider the meaning of 'wholesome'. Wholesome: conducive to long-term well-being You might feel the negative judgements of others towards pedophilia are knee-jerk reactions to a taboo, rather than rooted in sound reasoning. You might feel you are...

In terms of general social assertiveness, I totally agree on the usefulness of such. Certain situations call for specific learnings and response, about which I've very recently been learning more. Is there someone among friends/family who makes you feel like you have to be permanently walking on egg...

I can relate to a lot of this.

I'm just waking up to BPD traits in my wife after 8 years marriage.

You're not alone, and I've been reflecting on these matters for quite a while. One relevant factor is the well-noted trend where autistics will tend to work out what works for them in life, while having a reduced tendency to pick up and conform to the expectations of the majority. Sometimes I think ...

Other posters have linked the behavior to anxiety, and I agree with that. It's a stim, in all likelihood - it's like a messenger, and the underlying message is that they find this means of self-support to be necessary in the presence of emotional or sensory duress. It may be good to redirect the sup...

I was watching this on the local news, and beginning to fear the worst after the duration started to drag out. I'm super relieved he's okay! The coverage was a little sensationalist and zookeeper-ish, but overall about as good as we get from mainstream media. One major news outlet quoted aussie ND a...

Yes, there's a feeling that's more likely to be right than not. Verifying it in an acceptable manner might be a bit more problematic. Many have thought or asserted this while having to accept that it's difficult to prove. Now, there's some new thinking coming out from an autistic researcher that hel...

Sometimes the prevailing stigma has a big impact, it sounds to me like you are experiencing this now. Your mum is probably carrying around a lot of ideas that will turn out be wrong, upon learning and reflection, assuming she gets that far. First build up your own confidence and self-understanding. ...

A funeral is really for the people who are left. The person in the box at the front probably doesn't care much, except for whatever advance wishes they have. Personally, I plan to be cremated or composted. My version of an ideal aspie funeral, then, is an urn on a table and a few close friends holdi...

I've been reflecting on this. My resistance/dislike isn't extreme, but is present. I think I experience problems, especially forgetting things or sensory sensitivity associated with anxiety, when one of the following happen: - plans change unexpectedly - an unusual (not routine) activity happens - s...
