World Autism Day
« on: April 02, 2012, 10:22:00 AM »
Just a note today if world autism day. My 3 and a half year old son is in a special school for delayed kids and is being assessed for autism right now. He is a very unique little guy with a some sensory issues and problems communicating. It's hard sometimes to deal with for me, but I love him however he is. Even with his issues he loves to go out camping, fishing, to the lake, whatever, as long as he's hanging out with dad. So if you know some kids and families dealing with autism show some support. There are more and more kids these days with it and they really don't know why.

Tough is right Paul.  I have a nephew that has what is considered mild and it has been tough on my sister with him.  The social skills are lacking and in some school classes he has a few issues as well.  Over time his parents have seen improvements with him as he gets older and they have had professional help in dealing with a few of the issues as well which has helped.  He is 10 years old now.

My heart goes out to you Paul.
My best friend has a son who is very unique, but at the same time
Incredible special to his father and uncle Adam.
He is similar in age to your boy and just resently started communicating openly. It's doubtful in my mind that he has autism but I'm ignorant on the topic. One thing I really noticed over the years is how good he is at anything regarding memory and puzzles. When most children were remembering colors he had all the colors, shapes and dinasours down too. Hahah incredible to see he grab a puzzle piece and already know where it has to go before he seemingly has time to look at it.

I'm secretly hoping he will want to spend time camping with his dad and I so I can expose him bit by bit to archery. You never know he might just like it one day as much as he like dinasours.

You know what I'm going to call his dad an ask him how his "little dragons" MMA course went today.

Thanks for the great site,
adam

Hope this goes over well....
