Autism and Gauging Time

I found this topic to be very interesting.

In my case, my son is often so absorbed by his activities, that specific time (as in deadlines—ones like we have to go to school now) often alludes him.

He has trouble gauging, and remembering time.

He gets too distracted, most of the time.

In the past, I have used reminder countdowns and actual timer countdowns—with some success.

But, the issue is more complicated that I realize.

With that in mind, I found this article and want to share it with you.

The author does an excellent job of explaining how this topic specifically works in a person with autism.

Here is the article:

I hope you find it helpful.
