The good news about the Asperger’s Disorder child’s insistence on sameness is that it can be relatively easy to respond to. The vast majority of people of all ages function better with routine, structure, and predictability in their life. Some Asperger’s Disorder children and teens just take it to the extreme and have difficulty adjusting to changes.
If your child does have troubles managing her mood and behavior when changes in her daily routine occur, it is best to try to provide her with as much predictability as you can. This means creating a highly structured household where things are physically in order and daily tasks take place in a certain order. Charts, lists, and calendars on the wall help your child to see what will happen each day.
Dry-erase boards, bulletin boards with individual cards for each task that you can move around with pins, or calendars you make on your computer will make it easy for you to post the changes without having to recreate the list every time there is a change. Warning her ahead of time of upcoming changes can help prevent upset or minimize it.
