Asking for accommodation can be difficult. As I get older and learn more about myself, I am getting better at self avocation and asking for accommodations.
I want to make something clear. When an Autistic person is asking you for accommodations they are NOT looking for special treatment they just want to be comfortable.
Certain things I can tolerate if I have to, like florescent light bulbs and air conditioners but they make me physically sick and uncomfortable. Almost like an allergy.
If I ask to work alone in a quiet office with natural light people scoff because EVERYONE wants a quiet office with natural light but when I don’t have this I am truly suffering and in pain or feeling horrible.
I need to alone time and quiet more than anything. I wouldn’t ask if it weren’t important.
I love Aspie Sean‘s videos! Below he talks about what asking for accommodation means.
I can not express myself as well out loud as I can when I type but YouTuber Aspie Sean is amazing. I can take NO credit for this content please subscribe to Aspie Sean on YouTube for more great content.
