3 Different Ways of Looking at the Same Picture
I took a picture of my 11 year old son with autism sitting on the couch watching tv at about 8:45am this morning.
Here it is...
Here's what a parent of a typical kid might think when they see this picture...
There's a kid calmly sitting on the couch watching tv.
Here's what a parent of an autistic kid might think when they see this picture.
Wow, look how good he's sitting and how calm he is. And his posture is great. And he's doing "criss cross apple sauce" with his legs which means he's got good muscle tone.
Here's what I was thinking right before I took this pic.
Boy he slept like crap last night. That's why he's so calm watching tv. He's probably exhausted. Maybe he'll nap after this show. And then I can nap and get rid of this headache I've got from being up half the night with him.
Why is he touching his mouth? He's been picking at his front teeth all week. Wifey needs to make a dental appointment early in the new year. Oh that's gonna be fun... NOT...
When was the last time he ate? 15 hours ago? He's getting way too skinny. And his appetite sucks. Maybe the teeth bothering him are affecting his appetite?
Let me put the coffee on and get rid of this headache.
That's 3 different ways of looking at this pic..
