“Stop worrying. He’ll turn out fine.”

Again this comment has the best intentions yet is completely incorrect.

4 years ago my son was a stimming, rocking, non-verbal little puddle who’s trajectory was looking very scary. I quit work. I spent every hour I could sabotaging his desire to avoid and retreat.

I nodded his head with my hands.

Manipulated his hands into a point. Repeated words hundreds of times a day.

Changed his diet. I did all this while you sat back with a cappuccino in hand and watched your child develop these skills naturally.

Yes, he’s developing into a lovely little kid but unfortunately, I was forced to worry.


Finally a positive one. .. “They will surprise you.”

This comment is the comment that I love the most as it’s come from parents of autistic children and thank heavens … and better yet, it’s true.

Teddy continuously surprises us with comments or achievements we thought were beyond him. Sometimes they’re beyond your typical child. …
