#Autism and Indecision

What is it with #Autism and indecision?  This post is about my kids and my personal experience.  I’m in no way trying to say that all person’s with Autism are indecisive.

My kids have got to be the most indecisive on the planet.  Well,  maybe not the planet but they are the most indecisive in my world.

They can never seem to make up their minds and when they do,  it never lasts for very long. Gavin actually does pretty well. It’s Elliott and Emmett that are the most challenging.  Elliott is by far the worst in this area.

On Tuesday nights,  when he sees Dr.  Pattie,  he can never decide what he wants from the prize closet.

We have tried lots of things like,  reducing his choices or limiting the time he has to choose but nothing works. However,  when I try to limit these things,  they tend to get very upset and extremely anxious.

Both Elliott and Emmett have a tough time deciding what to eat. They flip flop back and forth between things like types of cereal they want for breakfast and whether they want their Ramon Noodles hot or cold. 

I was wondering if any of you are dealing with anything similar at your house?

You were able to explain autism and indecision in simple and informative way. I was able to understand it very well and I ma sure many will also get what you are trying to share here because it is very easy to understand.

Check annnd check. I do the same thing all the time. Can't pick what soda I want, what I want for dinner, etc etc. It's one of the reasons for the limited 'tolerable' things. Reduces the choices needed to make! For me it's because I'm not always sure if I'll be happy with the choice after I make it.

Yes I have, but it is just a little boy thing really. they are analyzing all the options trying to get the best. It is the competitive nature of kids.
