November 20, 2019: I wasn’t planning on blogging today but this is too good to let go by. I asked about this moment? Wasn’t sure it would ever come.
Do I have Autism Mom?
We were in the car and Summer was reading her science book. She loves science. It’s the only barely modified classroom class she has.
She took a break from reading and brought up a girl in her school and asked me what the girl had going on?
I said, “I think she has Autism.”
A brief moment of silence and she asked, “Mom, Do I have Autism?”
I responded with the same tone and without skipping a beat, Yes, you do Summer and this is why I have been trying to learn everything I can to help you.
She asked, “Is that why you went away and then took away all those things that cause me anxiety?
I said, “Yes, It is.”
She said, ‘Thanks Mom,. You know? I am learning so much more these days.”
I said, “That is great news…”
She interrupted, “Quiet mom, I’m reading my book.”
And so it goes, another moment of my daughter blowing me away. Her self-awareness has seen the most improvement in this short time since I have implemented the techniques of The Son-Rise Program®. She has become so much more inquisitive about everything and is blooming before my eyes.
