You are in good company if you struggle with trying to get others to accept your child the way he is and getting him to try to adapt to the world. It is exhausting to think about having to work on the numerous symptoms your child displays.
It can be easy to convince yourself that some of them are just not important and the world should learn to be more tolerant of those with differences. You may think, So what if he can’t get along on the playground? If he can’t play cooperatively, he can always play alone. If you adopt this approach, you can expect him to spend the rest of his life alone, having no friends.
Each behavior by itself may be easy to accept, but the overall picture must be kept in mind. Imagine what his life will be like if he does not adapt to the world he lives in. Ignoring his deficits will have lifelong implications. If you fail to provide him with the tools to get along in life, you are boxing him in for life. If he is not pushed to learn skills and adapt, he will be forced to live a restricted and rigid life without choices.
