I can go many weeks working, studying, socialising, keeping my house tidy, getting to appointments on time, making sure that the kids are reading properly (and eating homecooked meals), you know “high-functioning” autism. Then I will have periods that just getting out of bed and speaking is hard (if not impossible). I have difficulty communicating my needs with anyone. I do not eat or sleep for days on end.

How can this sort of grading system be helpful?
