Re: lack of understanding
Hello - I have a 5 year old with autism who is not very verbal. It is so hard when you see typical children. My 2 girls 9 and 6 are typical and a little boy from the neighbourhood was playing with them along with some other boys. And when we step out of our bubble it is heartbreaking over and over again. I am thinking of paying out of pocket (not that we can afford it) for additional speech outside of school and only hope that will help. But I do understand your pain - I will ask Nicolas "what's your name?" and he of course will answer "Nicolas" but if I ask him "Who are you" he looks at me like I have ten heads. Good luck with you child it is a long, long, road to haul. I would like to leave you with something my eldest daughter told me some time ago. She thinks that the Angels know who will and who will not be a good Mummy to these children and thats why he choose us, and you too.
