I usually have my autistic son watch me create these recipes (really any recipe that is pretty easy and not so many steps), so that the more I make them, the longer that they will stick to his memory. So eventually he would be able to start making them himself. It is so worth it. The more you cook, especially if it is a recipe that you create often, then you can slowly incorporate your autistic son or daughter’s participation so that in time they can perform the recipe independently. Priceless.
