My autistic step son will be five in less than a month. Daddy, his mommy, grandparents, school, and daycare are all still giving him sippy cups to drink out of.
I am the only one that does not and he does fine with a normal child size cup. Everyone argues with me that he will only drink out of a regular cup for me. Well won't he just have to drink out of a regular cup if people stop babying him?
Yes he is autistic and does not like change but he DOES need to grow up sometime right?
I know this is a loaded question but please advise :)

I am with you on this. Just because he is Autistic, doesn't mean he can't learn. People should be treating him as normal as possible. Autistic doesn't mean brain damaged
