Suggestions for Other Aspies

March 4, 2008

I had almost no problems as an undergraduate. However, as a graduate student, I had some difficulties with patience (though I am not sure if it had anything to do with autism). I really wanted to finish, and it was hard for me to wrap my mind around the idea that reading my thesis, as an M.A. student, and my dissertation, in my Ph.D. program, was not the number-one priority of each member of my committees.

What I think many aspies need is to have course requirements and expectations explained in a different manner. For that purpose, perhaps an educational therapist might be helpful:

I don’t know whether that kind of resource would be provided by your special services office. However, that seems to me to be one possible option. Another is to consult an occupational therapist.
