Failure to Adapt?

A 'disorder' is usually based on more than one trait or symptom.

Autism spectrum.

I need to copy that article and take it along to the therapists office this week - we go once a week for help in coping with my granddaughter who has been diagnosed with Autism - and with the one who has ADHD as well. He says I tend to think I have everything when we're talking about symptoms of Autism and ADHD - but the more I read the more I think that I really do have high functioning Autism and I'm not just reading into the situation.

My dad was very big on routine and hated change (at the least he had ADHD, possibly HFA) and so I didn't learn good coping mechanisms for changes. They can really upset me, especially if I get blindsided. When I go into a blind rage - I don't think that's exactly Neuro-Typical, eh?

I'm very change adverse. I have noticed only one thing can motivate me to change extremely depressive, negative, circumstances. Which is not a very convenient way to get things done. :)

May be related to slow cognitive pace, need for time and closure
May relate to resistance to change (to the relative unknown)
May relate to rigidity which reflects attempt to control and make sense of their environment (If one can't anticipate, predict, change may be frightening.)
"Keep on keeping on", have difficulty initiating stopping of a behaviour, whether a project, teasing, interrupting.

Recommend: Observe. Identify need, modify timelines as appropriate. Prepare for transitions: Forewarn, anticipate, state, act.

Perseveration is a symptom of several disorders.
