Today’s Autism Family Picture of the Day is once again of Emmett John. I saw him interacting with one of our dogs, Maggie and I had to snap a picture.
What struck me when I first saw this was how much it reminded of one of the things that led to the pursuit of an Autism diagnosis in the first place.
I remember when we were first going through the diagnostic process with Case Western, they ask us a really strange question.
They asked if Emmett was more curious about how something worked, than actually using that something. The example they gave was this: if Emmett were to play with a toy truck, would he push it around on the floor or would he flip it over and explore how it worked?
Of course, Emmett would do just that. He always flipped the truck over and played with the wheels, exploring how it worked. He was fascinated by how things worked.
When I saw Emmett and Maggie this morning, I was instantly transported back in time to when I was first asked that question. It’s just kinda interesting how some things never change. 🙂
