Hi! I was the one who asked this question over Twitter. Thank you so much for sharing your son’s story. Sounds like you are an amazing mom and his biggest advocate. What a lucky guy!
I’m a biology PhD student, 31 yrs old, and mother of a toddler. I was also diagnosed with ADHD last year which explained why I suddenly got madly interested in something, and then would drop it like a hot potato. The issue is that while I’m hyperfocusing on my interest of the moment, I can’t seem to do anything else. I was wondering how autistics go about that, and I do like the idea about incorporating interests in coursework, but since I don’t take courses anymore I think I will just maybe allow space and time for my interests in between work and then just wait it out. They usually go away in a few weeks. 🙂
Thank you again!
