I have actually hoarded light bulbs since they were banned a few years ago, so I have a few boxes ... :oops:

Only one aspie, but it requires an NT to constantly tell them to put down the special interest for 5 min and change the bleeping lightbulb.

2 - They need to argue on how how to obtain the best bulb for the best fit for the best light in this situation...

The answer is three.

One to rewire the house, to bring it up to latest safety standards.

One to choose the right wattage of bulb, considering the room it's for, and to screw it in.

And one to make 49 different choices of lightshade, because that's the bit Aspies always forget.

The answer is 1. Two is a crowd for the Aspie who likes to do things on his/her own.

Two.

One male aspie who lacks the social skills to find a socket for his bulb.

One female female aspie who lacks the social skills to find a bulb for her socket.

And both to go to the dating forum on WP to gripe about how they have it worse than the other gender!

One. Just one.

It is a simple, concrete procedure. And getting more people would require asking someone for help.

However, the Aspie in question must first look up instructions on how to change a lightbulb. While she is there, she may Google "Can Aspies change lightbulbs??" If she's having a bad day, she may have a meltdown believing that her disability renders her incapable of changing a lightbulb as well as a neurotypical...

...and God forbid she should have to **aaaacckkkk** go to the store and GET a lightbulb, having forgotten to prep those against extended bouts of agoraphobia...

i never figured it out, because i got sidetracked remembering this:

"How many Lojbanists does it take to change a broken lightbulb?
Two: one to decide what to change it into, and another to figure out what kind of bulb would emit broken light."

PS some real funny answers here!

None, because aspies are hypersensitive to bright light and prefer to have their rooms unilluminated by anything other than their computer screen.

How many aspie therapists does it take to change a light bulb?

One.

But the light bulb has really got to want to change...

1 Aspie to make all the right choices, plan for failures, and do the work.

PLUS

1 NT to tell the aspie how they need to plan things out, think about their choices, ask the aspie to describe how changing the lightbulb makes them feel, and collect their payment at the end of the therapy hour.
