I took Emmett with me today to refill our 5 gallon water jugs. While we were there, Emmett got a drink from the water cooler. They had paper cups and Emmett thought that was really cool.
However, things went downhill rapidly when he realized that his paper cup became crinkly when it got wet.
It was no longer perfect and he melted down as a result.
He was so upset and it went on for over an hour. I feel so bad for him because he just can’t cope with things being imperfect. We try so hard to work with him on these issues but only on the rarest of occasions does it actually help and today was not one of those occasions.
This is one of the toughest part of Autism for him, at least at this point.
Do your kids cope with imperfection or does it lead to a meltdown? Have you found a way to help your child through this?
