Help with transition between special interests

Postby Anthony8132 » Sat Aug 20, 2016 5:23 pm

My daughter is on the spectrum and changes her special interest frequently. (if you are unfamiliar with the term, special interest refers to a topic she intensely concentrates on for a period of time). Lately the transitions between special interests have been very difficult, with upset stomach, restlessness, and anxiety.

Has anyone else experiences anything similar? Would you be willing to share your story and any strategies you used to help?

I am on the high performing end of the autistic spectrum and have Asperger's Syndrome.

Could you specify your daughter's age?
