Sean is 12 and has autism. Tonight they had a 5th and 6th grade dance. He had been to the dances before but they usually ended up with him calling me to pick him up and him in tears. But tonight he had a date. The girl like him as a friend and since she has a brother with autism as well she understands him better than other kids.
The dance was a success with him. He danced 4 slow dances with her,and he said he didnt get to close lol. He also said the other songs were for single dances so his dad and I have to teach how to fast dance with a girl.
I'm so so proud of him and he was excited.
