My son is Autistic and was non-verbal for the first 4 yrs of his life. He's been in therapy for 35 hours a week for the past 3 yrs. He is the sweetest and most wonderful little boy. The progress he as made these past 3 yrs has been absolutely amazing to watch.
This year he is in 1st grade. He has a therapist that goes to school with him that will be phased out completely by the end of this school year. He is at the top of his class in academics and received a "Red Clip"(the highest level of behavior achievement you can reach) award last Friday. He was the first child in his class to receive this award this school year.
Today my son was called up during chapel to have his picture taken for Student of the Month!!!
I can't begin to express my joy over his progress. I'm so proud of him!! I just had to share :)
