My daughter has no patience with her autistic brother.
My 18 year old son is autistic but he is able to do things on his own, have friends and do school work with normal kids. He just has trouble understanding things like numbers, moves slowly when doing things with his hands and feet and rocks back forth while moving his hands and such. Anyways my daughter is 16 and has no patience with him. If he is taking a while to move out of her way in the hall way or put on his shoes she will stand right next to him and rush him along. Their only chores during the week are to clean the kitchen up after school. It takes him some time to do it and she will get so frustrated with him and will end up pushing him out of the way or snatching things from him to get it done. Oh and with the hands thing. He will sit in a rocking chair and rock back and forth very suddenly and kind of smack his fingers together(hard to explain) she gets so bothered by it and begs him(in a rude way) to sit still for 2 seconds.
I don't know what to do. I hate to say it but she is very uptight. She likes things to be done right when orders are given and will freak out if we are late leaving the house. She doesn't like chaos and our house is chaotic. My stepson(17) has learning disabilities and I've been dealing with trying to get my daughter homeschooled because she is sick all the time. So its never dull around here. any advice would be great to get her to calm down a little bit with her brother.
