The days, while full of beauty, are also full of hard edges and anxiety. I feel so very “less than” right now, not enough time or energy or whatever, to help these kids get off their slippery slope.
I expected regression, kids on the autism spectrum almost always go through it when there’s change.
And oh has there been change.
Every day we remind ourselves to not view things as disobedience or “bad” behavior, when they’re clearly an issue of stimming, lack of processing and not clicking in to their surroundings. Some things they can’t help. Right now, that’s most things, and it leaves me feeling powerless.
