I used to know a guy who was unusually able.
So, looking at things that are taught as highest priority to unusually able people.
Fairly key (but not entirely essentiaL) steps in the direction of 'normality'
1/ I can dress myself and keep myself clean.
2/ I can feed myself.
3/ I can communicate my needs and desires to a willing listener
4/ ... and so on.
If step 3 (for example) fails for any reason then fall back to step 2 and you're still ok - still 'normal' though maybe not very talkative.

I could easily insert a Hitler analogy here but Mr. Godwin ruined that. I’ll just check you with your own rule.

You have to clean up your own shit.
