Another way of describing rigidity in thinking and behaviour of people with ASD is using the Line Theory. As individuals, we have complete control over our thoughts and behaviour. In a sense, that means we can live our lives how we want to. Have you ever played the computer game, The Sims? This sort of represents what I am writing about right now. When I think about what life is like for me (ASD), and compare it to some neurotypical people, if I want to explain a bit about ASD to them, I find using lines as an analogy quite helpful.
