Don’t wait in Waiting rooms. Doctors Appointments, Dentist Exams, and other frequent visits that require a wait before being seen, can be a deal breaker for how well the actual visit goes, with an Autistic child. Call ahead before you get to the office of the appointment, ask them if they are running on time, and tell them your child is Autistic and doesn’t wait well. Ask them to take your cell number and call you when they are ready for you to be seen. Assure them you will be right outside their door, and just want to keep your child calm and get the most from your visit. I even have popped my head in my Pediatrician’s office to tell them “We’re here!” and then Mattie and I do laps in their nice big building, till they call me that the nurse is ready for us. It NEVER hurts to ask for this kind of help, they would rather have your child calm than tantruming in their waiting room!!
