Autism Dad: Benny & Teddy

This pic may seem pretty ordinary, except for a small detail, which is, in fact, anything but small. See Ben’s Teddy Bear, which he brought to Daddy’s home for the weekend. Ben is 8 and, until now, has never shown any interest in a Teddy…and another baby step: Ben, who has a thing for Strawberries, always hands them to me to remove the green stem. No longer; now he simply pulls it out himself and throws it in the trash. Also doing a great job of dressing himself, even if his undies are sometimes backwards. Starting to miss the days when he was so dependent on me 🙂

  1. It’s those apparently “little” things that really make a difference. Congratulations.
