How Can You Avoid Repetitive Behaviors in Autism?

Repetitive behavior is something that Alex does daily. More especially with numbers and phrases…almost to the point of getting angry if he thinks we don’t hear him. We have tried, and still trying to break this cycle. It does get irritating and monotonous, but we never want to start tuning him out. He does show a lot of social skills and independence in some areas, so we don’t want to discourage that, either.

Lending a Hand, Or Giving Back In Singapore

I had actually committed myself to a bit of charity work in Singapore….in the Summer of 1992. My ship had pulled into Singapore for a two-week stay, and some of us were asked if we wanted to spend a morning with some children at a local orphanage. Several of us went and had a great morning with our new friends. If I recall, we did some painting and light renovation work, but it was still a great experience. When you have the time, try giving some time to others.
