Pearl is a 50 year old woman who takes care of her husband. His main problems are with executive functioning, anxiety, and organizing. Pearl believes he is on the spectrum, as he has issues with attention deficit and similar GI tract problems, but has never gotten this properly diagnosed. He has severe irritable bowel and is on a very strict food diet. Most of the strain Pearl experiences is not physical, but psychological in nature.
Pearl needs help changing her husband’s behaviours; he is impatient, triggered by certain things, and has problems anticipating what he needs to do. This is due to his lack of executive functioning. ___________________________________
