I told my son it's World Autism Day and he asked warily, "What does that mean?" My answer for him and for our family...it's a day to celebrate the people we know who have autism. So we will be making The Best Ever Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookiesafter school.
Chances are, you know someone who has autism in their family. They are real people, not just shiny pictures in brochures. I'm not going to write much about autism this month. I write about it fairly often throughout the year. You can read my posts about autism here. My favorite autism post is here.
My son is growing up. I'm proud of him. He has worked very hard over the years to learn things. He has had great teachers and therapists who have helped him learn. He is still learning, and so are we, in how to help him learn. School will end for him, but learning won't. Or for us.
