A Story from School

Here's the note Jack's teacher sent home today:

"Yesterday, Jack's friend got into trouble and was sent to time out. While there, he said, 'I'm a loser!' This really concerned Jack. He went over, sat next to his friend, and told him, 'It's okay; you're not a loser.' He was so sympathetic toward his friend! Then, he told his friend, 'You just have to believe!' Then he started talking about Santa. Too funny! He definitely talked his friend out of his funk! What a great helper!"

How sweet is this!

He's been riding the regular bus with no problems, so we're modifying his IEP. I'm still nervous about the bus, but alas, mommies should not be too overprotective. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

That is one 'feel good' story! Great job Jack!

My nephew is also high functioning. I think it's funny that they say AS kiddos aren't sympathetic. Our Cole is very sweet when someone else is suffering. Especially when we're trying to kill him with Thanksgiving turkey. That story cracked me up!!

Can you suggest some links abot autism? This Christmas a nephew came over with his two year old son and I know something is not right. I believe he has a mild form (at least for now) of autism. Both the mother and father want to pretend there isn't anything wrong and hope he will out grow it, instead of learning ways to help their son.
