Scheduling for Adults with Autism

Even though my child is an adult now and in her own apartment scheduling is still an important support for her. You can imagine my surprise when I was talking to my oldest daughter and she started fussing. Of course I wanted to know what was the matter.

The DSP (Direct Support Worker) had just come into her room and told her to get dressed they were going somewhere. It was 9 o'clock at night. I had Dominoe go ask her where they were going.

When that didn't work I told Dominoe to tell the DSP her mother wanted to know. That got a reaction. All of a sudden the DSP told my daughter not to worry about it. She said her husband would go.

If I keep telling people that scheduling is important, do you think they will believe me some day?
