Video:Fathering Autism- Autistic Swimmer | Autism Family Weekend | Fathering Autism Vlog #95

Our autism family weekend. We make it a point, a very important point to make our neurotypical son just as much of a priority as our autistic daughter. Sometimes we have to divide and conquer and sometimes we have help. Paige, Abigail’s caregiver made sure Abigail had a great time while we were at Isaiah’s football game on Friday. Saturday we had a nice family day at Nanny and Da’s house helping them with some honey-dos and swam in pool.

Video:AUTISTIC WEREWOLF- AUTISTIC WEREWOLF QUESTIONS OF COMFORT

Video:AUTISTIC WEREWOLF- AUTISTIC WEREWOLF QUESTIONS OF COMFORT

Being autistic for me has meant I’ve never been exactly comfortable in crowds even in social situations where I know all the people. Comfort when out among Neurologically Typical Humans ois simply not possible for an autistic werewolf like myself. Oh to be effective while out and about among the humans I must create the vibe that I am comfortable around humans when I am really not. It is the fact that I fake being at peace among typical humans that lends to my being werewolf like hence my autistic werewolf moniker!

This video explores questions of comfort when it comes to being a person on the autism spectrum who in werewolf like fashion must appear comfortable when out and about among neurotypical humans.

Video:AUTISTIC WEREWOLF- AUTISTIC WEREWOLF ILLUSIONS OF CONTROL

Video:AUTISTIC WEREWOLF- AUTISTIC WEREWOLF ILLUSIONS OF CONTROL

So many neurologically typical people assume the meltdowns and other socially challenging aspects framing the autism life experience can be controlled. The effectively lived autism life experience does not and can never be founded on a concept of “absolute control.”

The idea of controlling autism is an illusionary fallacy neurotypical people sell to themselves. Autism can’t be controlled but the autism life experience can be effectively and rigorously managed IF the person on the spectrum is adequately trained.

This video explores the Illusions of autism control and how using an autism self management paradigm is a far better solution to helping understand life on the spectrum.
