Welcome back to the blog!
A quick-ish note first. Some older content here may use outdated language and this is an older video. The Tips are still very relevant!.. Reference outdated language, I tend not to use the term ‘Asperger’s syndrome’ and related terms now though recognise for many, including us, these were some of the first words that illuminated difference and may be how you continue to identify. The way I describe myself in the video has changed too since I recorded it. Nowadays… I align with and am an ally of the neurodiversity paradigm and I’m an ally for those navigating the challenges of relationships when your neurotypes are different. I also believe our identity and the words we use to describe ourselves are a fluid and changing experience when we are open to self-discovery and growth.
Ready to work on those traumatic transitions? Let’s dive in!
Transitions, from one routine to another, one activity to another, one event to another can create additional anxiety. This can lead to meltdowns, shutdowns and overwhelm. It’s possible to minimise the anxiety and overwhelm so follow along to learn more and begin to create a better and more peaceful experience for you and those you love most.
The only person you can change is you. The power is with you and how you behave and respond to transitions and loved ones. You can make changes to how this period of time is for you.
Here are 3 tips for less traumatic transitions in neurodiverse families:
- Slow Down
- Ask What You Can Do to Help
- Be ‘Meltdown/Shutdown Ready’
I love the philosophy ‘test and see’. Decide to give something a try and see what happens – children do it all the time!
