One-on-one is my prefered setting, if I am with people. Which means I don´t go to parties anymore and refuse to do group activities, because they are draining my energy and are a waste of time – in my opinion. You can send me an invitiation, but it´s likely that I am not coming. So … if I am attending your festivities that is a big honor for you and I would like you to acknowledge my efforts. If I say no, please respect my decision. Don´t turn your invitation into an obligation. And I hope I don´t have to remind you to never ever push me to come over. Never! So much about: how to treat an autist. Merry Christmas. Happy Easter. Crazy Halloween.
