One small step for Emmett, one giant leap towards independence

One small step for Emmett, one giant leap towards independence

Emmett is my 4 year old son with Autism.  He has a great many sensory processing issues and most of the time, can’t cope with the feeling of clothes on his skin.

Today however, he really made me proud because as bad of a mood as he has been in today, he did something truly awesome. 

While he refused to put his own clothes on (it’s just that kind of day), he did put his shoes and socks on all by himself.  He even puts his shoes on the correct feet and adjusted his socks as well.  Shoes and socks are Emmett‘s arch nemesis and he absolutely hates them most of the time. 

Today however, he managed to pull this off and I am super proud of him.  🙂
