Hi Riggs, I just greeted you:) I learned to drive late as requirement for my job as a case manager. I worked with people with cognitive disabilities and on the severe end of the autism spectrum and had to often take them places and go to their apartments and check on things with them.
I don't know how to use a GPS though my hubby loves it - he has a terrible sense of direction and is often lost at or around a place he's gone to many times before; I suspect he has a mild non-verbal LD based on that and other things.
I always have used landmarks to get around and really couldn't tell anyone <using traditional directionals> how to get to our place - I usually just say what major street it's by and the various landmarks around it.
