Highly rigid and restrictive routines are a part of the autism diagnosis. If we look at autism through the neurodiversity lens we might notice that repetitive routines are a learning strength for autistic individuals.
The Incredible 5-Point Scale was developed with this assumption in mind. The scale is a highly systemized method of teaching social and emotional information. What we have found over the recent 20 years is that focusing on rigidity and inflexibility as a learning strength, and placing value on that learning channel, can assist educators and parents in creating successful strategies.
