|My son's breakthrough: Waving goodbye with a smile|
Today my son achieved a breakthrough. Usually I get him ready for school in the morning. After I seat him in the school bus, I come out and wave. He would just stare at me through the window. Today, he smiled and waved back - something that he hasn't done before.
Recovering from autism is a series of these successes. What appears so natural that we overlook it in a normal child is herculean effort for these kids. I am happy he made this breakthrough today.
Dealing with autism has brought a different perspective in life: almost everything looks like a small challenge compared to this. Having him speak fluently is the equivalent of winning the Nobel Prize for me and my wife.
Thanks for sharing it here.
