How does your child with #Autism handle anticipation? For example, do they stress out while waiting for something to happen, even if it’s something positive they are waiting for?
In my experience, this happens when my kids are promised something that either never happens or is delayed.
Anticipation causes a great deal of anxiety in my kids and leads to this like meltdowns, sleepless nights and stress. This is why we never tell them that something is or isn’t going to happen, until we know for sure.
I’m sure that this may be different for everyone and that’s why I’m posing the question above.
