My goal is to help people better understand the impact of Autism on a daily basis. I use my family as an example and while no two people are alike, many of us face similar challenges.
This is my sweet Emmett.
We were going to have a special dinner before therapy tonight and I was letting the boys pick out a frozen dinner. Emmett went for the Kid Cuisines because that’s his favorite.
What you see in the video below is what happens every single time he has to make a decision about anything.
He panics because he can’t decide and is afraid of making the wrong decision. This absolutely interferes with everyday life and makes things extremely challenging..
I never get angry with him because he’s doing the best he can.
This absolutely breaks my heart because this sweet child apologizes constantly for being this way. I just hug him and tell him that it’s okay and we will work through this together
It’s so important to me that my kids know that no matter how challenging they may be, I love and cherish them more than anything in the world.. Testing my patience is a small price to pay for having the privilege of raising them.. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
