Reflections on Autism & Play - Imagine trying to connect with a child you love. Imagine it not working...
How did my son come up with the idea that crying is somehow "bad", something contemptuous?
"Mom, I just want to be normal! I just want to be like everyone else!"
My autistic son reveals how his brain and emotions work in a crisis incident at school (at age 14).
My autistic son describes the intensity of his sensory-emotional experience in school (Grade 3).
To invite my son meant I had to be able to invite – not only him – but myself, as well.
It was clear right from day one that there was something different about my son.
I remember what I thought of autism years ago as a young psychologist... That was before my autistic son was born.
