A few things I like:
When a family member has a problem that her/him stuck, I can usually give them options they hadn’t thought of themselves.
When hyperfocus kicks in, and I’ll research the heck out of something that needs to be checked out.
I learned to see admitting to and learning about any limitation(s) as a path to making life easier. I also have learned to not feel the shame that often occrs. This has resulted in the people around me feeling safe in speaking with me when they face new or undiagnosed differences for themselves or their kids.
