How does your child with #Autism see themselves?

Have you ever wondered how your Autistic child sees themselves? Yesterday, my youngest Emmett, came home from school with this self-portrait. Apparently this is how he sees himself. 

He even included the identity of his senses.  They are clearly labeled incase the person viewing his artwork was unaware of what his senses were. 

I’m assuming that he must have been discussing senses at school and this was part of that. 

Please leave your positive feedback in the comments below.  Let Emmett know what you think of his masterpiece.

About body sense? My son also draw a lot when at school, about what he did not like or make him happy. He also continue drawing himself as spirals eyes… Like that how i feel…

I really dont know now… He is more quiet than when he couldn’t talk… He just have a minimum autism and other issues… But because I lost his trust, now we really dont get alone when it comes to talk his real issues and botherness… We fight about long hours in computer chatting and bad games do…

That's a really great picture of you with all your senses labelled. It's really hard to draw a self portrait! Good job!
