Adventures With Autism and Adopting a Healthier Lifestyle

Trade-offs

It seems that when Emily makes gains in one area, another suffers.

For instance, she’ll pick up new “owned” words (or suddenly pronounce things better), but she’ll start hitting more.

She’ll learn a new skill, but seemingly lose another.

I realize the Autistic brain is “wired” differently, so I’m guessing it has something to do with that. One part of the brain is more active, so another either dwindles in activity, or … misfires, so to speak.

Anyone else have opinions or input on this?
