Our child has autism. All of us love him to death & we have worked strenuous to make sure he gets all the resources available to him. While he is beautiful to hang out with & talk to, there are some things he does that can be discouraging. Occasionally he will go to adjust the temperature control settings in the middle of the night & we might be covered in sweat profusely or cold depending on which way he adjusted the thermostat. When we go to confront him about things like this, he has always been brutally honest. If we ask him if he messed with the thermostat, he will tell us “yeah” straight up without hesitation. When we ask him why, that’s a whole unusual thing. He never actually seems to suppose why he does things like that, or he can’t explain it. I suppose it has something to do with his autism. I understand that the senses are unusual & sometimes you need hands on to learn about thingsâ€¦ Perhaps he was just trying to learn about how the Heating & A/C system works. I ended up explaining to him all the unusual components & he was engaged. He was interested in all the names of the Heating & A/C components & I even provided him a little diagram that labeled everything. He already memorized all of the parts. I kind of think he would be a undoubtedly skilled Heating & A/C professional if he actually wanted to do that. It’s something I will have to talk to him about down the road, what he wants to do ultimately in life.
