When people make statements or ask questions, I find it difficult to determine whether they're looking for a "casual" or more in-depth response, which I think is why I have such difficulty relating to people on a lot of predominantly Neurotypical forums. I can completely understand why people would want to relax, mess around and enjoy each other's company, but when I ask for advice on something or make a serious statement, I want to receive long, in-depth, thoughtful and articulate responses, and I do not take kindly to being given short, inane, and decidedly unhelpful garbage instead. Apparently, a lot of people feel differently. On other forums, someone will ask for advice on something, and I'll respond with a long, thoughtful post. I'll try my best to explain and justify my points. Do people respond? Nope. Do they question me further? Nope. Do they even show the least bit of appreciation by clicking the "like" button? Again, no. I really wouldn't have an issue with this if it weren't for the fact that the same people are extremely responsive to other people's short, uninformative and inarticulate posts which completely lack care and attempts to justify the points made therein. They also seem to value (supposedly) humerous derailment posts which border upon spam more than the effort I've put into trying to assist them. So, let me get this straight: People who ask for help want me to intentionally respond to them in a way that isn't helpful? Okay. Why? It's so damn annoying when people ask for advice and then act as though I've done something wrong by giving them a long, in-depth answer with the intention of being as helpful as possible. The example above is from my experience online, but I imagine that some socially inclined Aspies will have experienced things like this in real life too. Have any of you noticed this?
Hiya guys Anyone can answer, but I'd really appreciate the help of parents with children on the Autistic Spectrum. I think what I'm asking about would be called social stories. But they're whatever you want to call them: short stories for children with Autism or Aspergers, aimed at helping them understand things better in a fun and light hearted way. I am going to be writing some stories with my characters Koby and Friends and I want to know if there's any specific thing you would like to be covered. The first one I am doing is about sharing. I grew up with a younger brother who struggled a lot when he was a toddler/very young child, so I know a lot about coping methods (well the ways we coped anyway) and about what can set a child off. And of course, I have Aspergers, my partner has Aspergers etc, so I think I should do okay. Also, can you tell me which font you prefer in terms of being the best for your children to read and copy, whilst still being accurate to how they are taught at school.
