I have a high functioning Autistic son, 9 years old. I have a total of 5 children. I expect my 7 year old to do some chores, cleaning room, taking out trash, cleaning off kitchen table, etc. My 9 year old knows right from wrong and is perfectly capable of doing these things as well and it's not fair to my 7 year old he has to do everything. How do I find common ground? What incentives would you suggest to encourage my 9 year old? How do you handle things in your home? I'm always struggling with this scenario and feel lost. I feel like he should be able to learn some responsibility and I don't want to wait too long.
