i want to take a moment to share my view on autism.....you don't need agree, each child is different, hence, their parents are too!
we use the expression in our home,
we believe it's a part of my son, no different than his asthma, round booty or 'deer' nose like mine!
i guess one reason why my perspective may be different than others on this is that my son is extremely 'high functioning.'
how he 'works' is that he's just different, ahead of his peers in some areas, and working to catch up in others, such as speech....
one of his many gifts that continuously amazes people is his level of reading at the age of five,
i'm guessing it's somewhere around a fifth grade level? he's also obsessed with movie credits, as some of you may already know. he can easily, and quite quickly, memorize and recreate large number of credits every single day.
but what he did recently tickled me.....
then continued on with some interesting additions, which he insisted i take a picture of as well! people sometimes use the word 'GENIUS' in regards to him which doesn't bother me one bit, lol!
