Sense of humour
When my son was diagnosed with autism , a leaflet I was given said try and keep your sense of humour. I could not think of anything worse to advise at that time. A year on I can see that laughing things off and keeping calm and upbeat really helps my sons mood. Especially when it comes to the dissaproving looks and comments from people who dont understand. My son splashed someone who was giving him "the look" the other day at the swimming. You probably know the look I mean. I can tell wherever my son is in a room by following "the look" on people or childrens faces. When the woman protested at being splashed in the swimming, i just calmly said. You must be the only person in glasgow who comes to the swimming to stay dry. I know I should not laugh but I cant help thinking to myself , good on you son.
