Q: I have autism. New unexpected situations are difficult. I might have to appear in court how can I make it easier
I have autism. I struggle with a lot of things most of which I hide because I can control everything. I have a stupid question. I got a court appearance ticket for traffic accident. I don't know how to act in court. I do know the general idea, but not all the rules. The not knowing makes me nervous. Is there a way to get a better understanding of what to expect. Would talking to the prosecutor about autism be appropriate or not? I don't intend to fight the ticket. I would simply like to avoid having a meltdown or shutdown in open court. Those are struggles I would prefer to remain private. Sorry way too much info I just don't know what to do
