Is it usual for someone with high functioning autism to try things on their own just to "test" themselves and see if they can do it. My daughter said it was ok for us to take her to Disneyworld. We were extremely shocked as she has never liked crowded places and has only been to Disneyland once. Anyway, we took her, and it was a total disaster. She completely shut down, threw up, got overheated and we ended up leaving maybe about 4 hours after we had arrived. Finally, when we were home and she had calmed down I asked her why she had wanted to go, and she responded that she wanted to see if she could "make it."
