Holy crap balls, today was a rough start. One of the biggest challenges the Lost and Tired family faces in regards to Autism is generalization. In the eyes of my kids, if something happens once, it will always happen.
This morning, Emmett was freaking the frak out because we wanted him to wear his coat.
Apparently, at some point, he had a problem with hanging his coat up on a hanger at school. Because of his perception that he must hang his coat up on a hanger (which turns out to be an incorrect assumption), he refuses to wear a coat.
He has a full on meltdown now, every time we try to get him to wear a coat to school now.
What’s so frustrating about this is the fact that he actually doesn’t have to hang his coat up. We spoke with his teachers this morning and they clarified this for us this morning and are going to reinforce that with Emmett as well.
