Making Friends: The Power of Love and Peace (Sharing of my trip to Italy)

20130929-230309.jpg

There is a saying that friendship is a gift. For some people, making friends is not their interest. For majority of young people affected by the Autism Spectrum Disorder, making friends is hard and at times stressful, let alone building friendship.

This time I come to Rome for the 25th Annual World Peace Meeting, I am going to meet a lot of new friends with very diverse ethnic and social background. People from North Europe, North Africa, Balkans, Pakistan, Philippine, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea, Japan, United States of America and many more, will join together to share the journey of their peoples in helping those who suffer in poverty or war. One thing drawing us together is our courage to hope for peace and fraternity. The first steps are making friends with each other and understand what is happening to their countries that hurt and how their people deal with it.

Personally, I am not very social and I do not actively make a lot of friends. In this trip, I want to find out what drives a person who is not socially active, just like me, to make friends.

Nonetheless, I think it’s important to share what I observe during this World Peace Meeting about how people make friends and care for each other. I wish such sharing (of what I observe) will remind us of why making friends is meaningful and rewarding. Hopefully, there will be chance that people with ASD or without much social motivation will discover the links between meeting friends and making peace.

More sharing and photos will thus be shared between 28 September to 9th October 2013.

Buono!

母親心結重重·升小一亜斯伯格孩子的過渡期攻略

20130926-163042.jpg

WC(背景資料撮要:接近六歲的小男孩數學能力達二年级水平,幼年時被斷有亞斯伯格症狀的特微,父母教育水平高,他們設法找尋各種渠道,無論是政府和私人機構提供的社交和其他生活技能的復康服務幫助兒子,由於他自少體能和集中力方面都不太持久。每當環境有所𨍭變時,他很敏感内心的壓力會明顯增加,繼而産生固執反應和鬧情緖,甚至夜半哭醒影响不只他還有其他家人的睡眠質素。近日,他剛由幼稚園升讀小學。開學前幾個星期發脾氣的次數已明顯頻密了,怎料開課之後⋯⋯)

WC母親:剛剛老師給我打電話,說他常遊魂,又常走出課室,不跟大隊上堂。

顧問:這不是新問題。他幼稚園上課時也有「遊離」,後來用社交故事教他,在短時間内已把他的「離塲」,問题紏正過來了。嘗試過與班主任老師解說他的狀況和特殊需要嗎?

WC母親:我不希望學校把兒子標籤,我想老師當他正常孩子看待。我已向老師提及幼兒園上堂時,他未經准許會走離課室。

顧問:從前你也當過老師,照理老師知清楚學生的個别狀况和需要,在家校協調和管教方面都㑹帶來顯著效果。若你需要我介入支援家校合作的話,我亦無問題。只有對症下葯才會收效。

WC母親:我直覺知道老師已經開始猜疑兒子是有問題的。我也𣎴知怎算好……

職場應對Q&A 亞斯伯格過渡期攻略

20130926-001254.jpg

職場應對(1)Q&A

年輕人:為何上司對我說話,我總無法即時理解他的指示?我怕明早第一日上班已給別人誤為我辨事能力有問題。我很擔心啊!

顧問:所謂「聽其聲卻不明其意」,有部份亞斯伯格症狀的朋支都遇過不同程度的聽覺理解問題(auditory processing),你無需過份注意這種反應,甚至怪責自己。

反而,你自備一本活頁記事簿,每逢上司或同事有什麼吩咐或指示,你一邊認真地聽,另一邊列寫下來。一方面你讓自己多一點時間去理解清楚,有不明白的地方便隨即請教。叧一方面,亦顯示出你格外認真著意弄淸楚指令。你不妨一試。

不過,做第一份工首天上班你的心情自然緊張,這是人之常情。回想當年你第一 天上小學,心情亦有㸃戰戰兢兢,但不消幾星期就適應過來了,且慢慢交了新朋友你的心情就愉快多了。往日如是,今日亦然。信自己多一點,瞬間就到期拿薪金了,豈不樂哉?

Asperger/亞氏保加/亞斯伯格代言人 評:

每個人擁有的能力和時間是有限。因為這樣,自閉症(Autism)和亞氏保加症(Asperger’s syndrome)的朋友通常有個特別的做法,就是將自己所有或者大部分的資源精神心力聚焦在某個地方,重點不是讓別人量度得出來的結果成就,而是在那裏找到自己。
