Patient discussion about adult

Q. Are there any nice activities for adults with autism? I've been helping a very nice man of 45 of years old and I'm looking for some new things I can do with him in our time together. any ideas?

A. Autistic people react wonderfully with animals. for instance- i saw a group of severe Autistic teenagers going to swim with dolphins. the effect was amazing! taking him to the zoo, or even to the park to feed ducks, pet dogs, whatever.. could have a great effect on him.
hope i helped!
tell me how it went.

Q. If you are an adult with autism what is your biggest struggle? There are lots of symptoms for autism. Some suffer with depression, stress, break downs etc., as a parent what do you think is the hardest part of dealing with autism? If you are an adult with autism what is your biggest struggle?

A. It’s very difficult to answer from my part. I feel sad to see him struggle for basic things that are easy for kids of his age. But it touches my heart how hard he tries! I think he struggles most with being able to always get the words out. I can see his little mind working to find the words.

Q. What does thumb or finger sucking mean in ADULTS? People watch the unusual behavior of a person and decide their disorder. I strongly agree, but here is a critical question for you all. What does thumb or finger sucking mean in ADULTS?

A. It’s not a show to enjoy and laugh! It means that whomever you are talking about needs to see a psychologist. I am not joking. Things we are supposed to out-grow but don't, i.e. thumb sucking, imaginary friends or bed wetting, can represent serious problems or mental blocks.
