Surviving domestic abuse & stalking means strategic planning & playing it smart. When faced with daily survival tasks & overwhelming fears a victim is too often left with no time to properly construct safety plans & an escape guide. If you toss into the mix the unique sensory differences faced by individuals on the autism spectrum, then you will understand why Susan Murphy Milano's new book "Time's Up" is proving to be a vital asset. All people react in a highly sensitized manner when processing stress surrounding violence & ongoing abuse. For individuals on the autism spectrum, most experience unique sensory challenges pertaining to Executive Function & will be faced with processing an even more exaggerated sensory reaction when enduring acts of violence, stalking, and/or ongoing abuse. Some of these noticeable neuro-differences for individuals on the spectrum are: *Making arbitrary choices, *Breaking down large tasks into smaller steps, *Recognizing possible options in their situation, *Deciphering how they feel about various options, *Implementing information and/or their skills necessary to complete tasks, *"Beginning" (actually start moving in response to thought. In Time's Up, Susan has already done your thinking for you as she guides you through the necessary strategies, and life saving tools. Law enforcement agencies, social workers, psychologists & attorneys are looking to it as a valuable resource when assisting clients.
