Chores and ASD
I had to at age 10 make my bed, do my own laundry, put my toys away, clean up after myself, set the table, unload the dishwasher, put out the garbage, recycling, get the mail, feed and take care of the pets, and walk them. I got $5 a week for doing my chores regardless of how well they were done. that was 20 years ago and my parents did not know that I had any disability so they made me do everything that a normal kid would have to do. Some of the chores I had to do when I was 6 and others got added after.
