Are you an autistic teen or adult, or even the parent of one, and thought that getting a driver’s license is out of the question? You just don’t feel comfortable with the idea, or you may have already failed miserably at getting one?
Take your future into your hands! We’re building a book and resources to help those on the spectrum have the freedom of being prepared to drive. What if we told you that you may be dealing with a number of invisible barriers that make driving with autism spectrum disorder a bit tougher to achieve, and that you can overcome many, if not all of them? You probably don’t even realize some of these exist, so just becoming aware of them is a great first step. Knowledge is power.
Know the barriers, understand how to overcome them, and open up your world with the freedom to drive comfortably anywhere you’d like.
There are different categories of barriers and roadblocks, and you may have a few of them or a lot of them to work on. There is a logical order to tackle them in, as well.
Parents, it’s never too early or late to start. We will have suggestions that YOU can start while the kids are quite young, plus tips on how to help your son or daughter succeed as you take them around for practice drives.
Start your engines!
