Autism, facts and absolutes?

All the trees are dead - autism, facts and absolutes?

Yesterday was the 1st of December, and according to Anthony, who has autism, this meant it was now definitely 'Winter', he had to open a chocolate advent calendar and all the trees were dead.

  1. Aw, it's a sort of bleak but beautiful viewpoint.

    I'm not looking forward to having to explain about death in more detail. Tyger is a bit obsessed with it at the moment but since he plays 'sword fighting' with his dad where they both 'die', I don't think he has any concept of the permanency yet. These things are difficult to explain to children at the best of times but the ASD adds an extra challenge.

  2. We haven't got to the stage of explaining things like this yet, wrongly or rightly, I don't know? But with the lack of communication there are no questions which means at the moment there are no answers. I think explaining things like death to any child is difficult, but for a child that struggles with feelings and emotions, I imagine it is extra difficult. I do, sometimes like these viewpoints they have though! If only life was that simple eh? Thank you for linking up to #spectrumsunday, sorry I am late commenting this week, it has been a bit of a nightmare week! Hope to see you again this week xx
