I find it interesting that some people with ASD have no daily routine (in fact, it astounds me as I cannot ever personally imagine living a life without a very rigid structure). But routines can manifest in different ways.
It is often said that people on the autistic spectrum like routines. There might be some misunderstanding however, because a ‘routine’ is not limited to simply being the way a person structures their day. Indeed, some people with ASD have no structure to their day at all, yet will still have their routines. This article summarises four different ways a ‘routine’ may look in people with an autism spectrum disorder.
