The reality is that we live in an age when technology seems to be everywhere. We’ve seen the rise of social media, and the internet, and apps and game consoles. We can also see the rise of technology addiction. It’s part of what makes us human and it is a very real issue. We don’t think about it, but we are. It has become a problem for the majority of us.
So for those of us who are autistic, what do we do about it? How do we avoid being so addicted to technology that we forget the real world exists and that its not a scary place? It can be incredibly overwhelming to figure out how to get rid of our addiction and still remain in a good enough state to be a social part of society. I don’t know if there is a cure for it, but there are a few things I want you to try.
There are a lot of factors that contribute to an autistic person’s tendency to be addicted to technology. It can be a result of a genetic predisposition for it. Sometimes it’s just an addiction to technology. Maybe the person has been given a gadget or computer and has just been hooked for life. Maybe they have a new favorite toy or game and they want to play with it every weekend. I have a friend who started using social media because of a certain game for a while.
There are other factors that can contribute to an autism person tendency to be addicted to technology. I don’t want to lie to you, but I think if you’re using social media, it can cause you to get addicted to it. I have a friend who has always been addicted to technology since the beginning, and I hope you can help him, too.
We are not talking about social media addiction, but rather the desire of a person to connect with others in their area of expertise or interest, such as a doctor, musician, artist, etc. It’s a bit of a different thing, but like many things, there is a natural drive to be in the know, to be in the know, and that can become a very addictive desire.
I have a friend who has been on a quest to learn everything about autism. He is now a medical doctor, and has been in the field for about 10 years. He’s really good at what he does, and he is always trying to teach other people about autism, so he’s becoming a bit of a celebrity in his field. He doesn’t have this kind of obsession with technology though. At all.
I see this as being a bit complicated. Like many people with autism, there are a number of things that have been going on for him that have kept him on the edge of his seat. For instance, he was born with severe dyslexia, and his parents struggled with reading his letters, but it wasnt until he was about 3 or 4 years old that he could read at all. It was after that when they realized that he had a severe problem with technology.
I don’t know that I have ever met a dyslexic person who wasn’t obsessed with technology. I know that I have met a lot of people who had to find a way to focus and concentrate on reading and other things that they had a problem with. The thing is that most people with autism think technology is the enemy, that it’s the cause of their difficulties, and that they need to make everything they do more “manly” in order to achieve success.
I think some people with autism find it easier to focus on reading a book or doing something online in the beginning. However, as soon as they get that first “oh, this is it, this is it,” it becomes hard to continue. I think the problem with this is that people with autism are usually a little self-conscious and are often self-conscious about things, so they find it easier to focus just on doing the things that they know they can do.
As a matter of fact, many people with autism find it harder to take on certain tasks when they’re not reading. For example, if a book says “Hurry up, I’m not going to read this book”, it becomes harder to do this at first.
