So the article I’m posting today is about a place I’m familiar with. It’s entitled “When the ‘Basics’ Are Difficult for My Son with Autism” by Shawna Wingert over at The Mighty. While my son doesn’t know what a CPU is, his knowledge of cars is incredible.

In fact, a few weeks ago I took him to a friends mechanic shop, with the idea that if he knows a lot about cars from the outside, maybe learning about the inside of cars is the next logical step.

Anyway, like the young man in the article, my son couldn’t do the basics at that age but to look at him today, it’s amazing to see how far he’s come. As Ms. Wingert said in her article, my son will figure it out. Until then, he has me. I’m his dad.
