There is so much misconception in the world about #Autism. There is an assumption that kids in the spectrum are somehow less intelligent than their typical peers.
This however, couldn’t be farther from the truth. Kids on the #Autism spectrum are among the smartest there are.
What I think happens is that people make assumptions based on a child’s behavior or ability to talk. That is a horrible mistake. While it’s true that kids with #Autism can be challenging, present with major behavioral problems or maybe not be able to speak, that it not a reflection of who they are on the inside.
My kids, while extremely challenging, are both super smart and very creative.
Today I want to share Emmett’s latest creation.
I can’t remember what these blocks are called but they are a ton of fun for the boys. Today, Emmett was putting together silly creatures. This was my personal favorite.
He didn’t name it but who cares. It’s still pretty darn creative.
