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.
