Day 16. Talk about treatment. Have you been through any therapies? What ones did you like? Which ones didn’t you like? Do you think autistic people need therapy for their autism?
I had therapy in order to diagnose me but that’s it.
These therapies included …
- Drawing my feelings
- Walking across a straight line on the floor
- Looking at pictures of faces and trying to work out what emotion the face was conveying
After I was diagnosed I didn’t have any therapy. So I can’t really comment on therapies or which ones I liked/disliked.
I do believe that autistics need some kind of therapy to help them understand their autism to a greater extent.
The world is a hard place to live in, when you feel like everyone else has got an instruction manual on how to work in it. I have the instruction manual it is just not written in my language.
Any support, knowledge or understanding that could be given to an autistic would be beneficial.
Now if anyone has any support, knowledge or understanding please send it in my direction.
