How social are you?

Recommended Posts

Yeah. It is just me that can't understand certain things, then! Many thanks for all the input. Unless anybody can help with how I can better explain the difficulties that are getting in the way of church & so on? Can it really be that most people don't really understand that stuff but, somehow, 'just get on with it'? Even if so, I seem unable to do the same!  :unsure:

There is another difficulty here & that'll be explaining to all the support workers about this? Their job seems to include getting people into socializing! They don't really understand the problems, of course. Somehow, I need to convince them in order to move on to other accommodation, though?

If your having difficulties in communication and people cant understand you and you them do you think its a good idea to even be trying to move on until this issue has been resolved.

Any ideas how to achieve that? It's not like people don't understand plenty of things I say or vice versa. And if we could fix the problems there are, I'd be able to socialize properly! I think, finally, I've decided that is not worth the effort but then it's dealing with support workers, who will be trying to push me back into it, though.

Who are the support workers? Do these support workers not understand the problems because they don't understand about AS? If that's the case, then you could print out some information to give to them, the NAS have some leaflets you could use.

Thats very good advice there they helped me a lot and sent me all the information I needed at the time and they were good listeners and gave an awful lot of good advice they would be the best people to talk to Bruce.

Thanks! Just talked with the support worker here & we are hoping to hear back from another agency, which specialises in Autism. I think that's about as well sorted out as it can be, for now - it all depends what the 'experts' have to say about it, when I meet them. I'll let you all know how it goes!  :)

Oh that's good - it makes a difference to talk to someone who understands the kind of problems you're having :) I was having CBT a month or so ago and the support worker did her best to help me but hadn't a clue about AS and didn't realise that you need to take a different approach to the problems, she was giving advice which would be useful for people without social difficulties but didn't really work for me.

 

i hope you manage to get it sorted out, let us know how you get on :)

I have the same concerns about my councillor i dont think she understands the problems i have and face each day. It makes you think that if your awaiting an assesment it would be more benefial to hurry that through because we could be getting the wrong counciling due to them not having a correct diagnosis in the first instance.
