In the first of our #XmasAutisticLifeHacks for 2019, the Leeds Autism AIM team have come up with one that concerns one of the most stressful things about the festive period: Presents!

This one looks at what we would like to receive from our friends and family as well as what to buy. All this one involves is sending a wish list to your friends and asking them to reciprocate:

“Avoid present anxiety by giving your loved ones a list of things you would like to receive and ask them to do the same for you.

“This will avoid anxiety and help you and others to manage their expectations.”
