My son is autistic and I've worked around several adults that are as well. Always be patient and pay attention to every detail. Get on their level and let them come to you. They can be very manipulative and sometimes it's hard to tell behavior from autism itself. But they see the world so differently so you can't expect them to just simply understand. It's repetitive teaching and training that helps them the most, stay consistent.
