Why Hygiene and Being Accountable Is Important

Adulting with Autism

29-01-2024 • 12 mins

Life has a way of shaking up our best-laid plans, and I, April Ratchford, am no stranger to this. After a short, unplanned hiatus, I'm back with a heartfelt apology and an episode that's near and dear to my heart—shedding light on accountability and grooming in adulthood for those on the autism spectrum. With a brand-new microphone in tow, I delve into the often-overlooked lesson of accountability that's essential for individuals like my son, Z. Through a personal story, I illuminate the struggles and triumphs of embracing responsibility, punctuality, and decision-making, emphasizing why it's crucial to foster these skills rather than depend on others. We also unravel the subtle yet significant role personal grooming plays in how the world perceives us. A simple routine of haircuts and beard trims might seem trivial, but for someone with autism, it's a powerful form of self-expression and respect. Join me in exploring these nuanced facets of adult life, and together, let's navigate the complexities of self-advocacy and presentation. Tune in every Friday to 'Adulting with Autism' on platforms like Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Audible, and Google Podcasts, and thank you for your unwavering support and patience.
