My son has autism. He is 8 and has never spoken a word.He doesnt make eye contact. If I get in his face to try to get him to look at me he looks away as fast as he can and closes his eyes. He likes to spend alot of his time spinning things like the lids to my pans. He likes to swing. He watches the same movies over and over again. He likes to feel the texture of fabrics on his nails, he scratches my couch very slowly. He doesnt understand sarcasm or rudeness. He knows how to get himself a bowl of cereal, which he LOVES, but if you ask him what does he like to eat he doesnt know what you mean. He is the most special person Ive ever met! Everyone loves to be around him! His smile will light up the room and he thinks its the funniest thing in the world to see his mom and dad on the swings haha With everything you ever hear about autism never forget that these kids are so very special. They Do have feelings and they are AWESOME!!!
