Cool Things I Learned From A Child With Autism

It doesn't matter if the chimpanzee signs back, it's
fun to sign "tree" and "ball" to him anyway!

The sound of a golf ball rolling from the front seat of the van to the back seat is hysterically funny.

Everyone laughs when kids say
"Oh Sh-t!"

Play-doh..Poop. Who decided why one is acceptable to play with and not the other?

Little victories are huge.

Kicking the cushions off of the sofa makes a fabulous trampoline.

Ball pits aren't just for kids. Teen-aged cousins and "grown-ups" like them, too!

Beagles are loud and obnoxious. The big fuzzy dog is a much better pillow anyway.

Watching the tires of a hot-wheels car roll is cool.

Grown-ups cry when hearing their name for the first time from a four-year old.

The sound of a cat hissing is awesome.

Different is OK.

People with Autism don't have a disability, they have a DIFFERENT ability:

"I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world."

"Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them."

~Albert Einstein
Autism didn't stop him!
