he found his glasses!
He hasn't worn them all summer, and now that school is a week away we gotta start training him to wear them again. With his Aspergers, once he is used to something he will have a fit if you change it. So the only way to fix it is to make him do it the way you want until you reach a point that he can only do it that way. Make sense? Example: Last year Ed had long moppy hair and refused to have it cut because he liked the way it felt. Solution: force him to the barber every 3-4 weeks, now he insists on going to the barber to keep his hair shorter than before. Once he got used to the sensory part of short hair it had to stay that way or his routine would be different. This applies to just about anything.
