PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER

As autistic adults, we face many small challenges in our everyday lives. When these challenges combine, the impact on our daily functioning may be greater than it would be on others who are not autistic. Sometimes, the small things build up so much that it becomes overwhelming, making it hard to manage other parts of our lives.

It is important to empower yourself by making a plan to try to overcome these challenges. This roadmap has helped you identify your challenges and assess what triggers them, what types of strategies are helpful in difficult situations, and what you can do to support yourself and set yourself up for success. A plan that covers all of seven areas outlined in this roadmap will help you reach a place of personal balance and empowerment.

We have created a worksheet to help you keep all of this helpful information in one place. Below is a summary of the questions that we covered in each section of the roadmap. Click here for a PDF version.

Keep it mind this is a living document and your answers are likely to change over time. You may want to periodically go through this roadmap to be sure your answers are fresh and the most applicable to your current situation. Your answers to the questions may be longer, so feel free to use this as a summary sheet to refer to when looking for an overview of the supports you may need to empower yourself in all areas of your life.
