Today’s #Autism Victory: Homework Progress

Today’s #Autism Victory: Homework Progress

Emmett’s already climbed into bed with me and I’m trying very much to put aside my stress load for the night.


Getting Emmett to sleep in his own bed is a work in progress but it’s ranking pretty low on the list of shit I have to work on. 

Anyway, I wanted to end the night or start the day, however you look at it, on a positive note. 

When it came to Elliott and his homework tonight, I met some resistance initially.  Frankly, I think he was pretty spent from their fieldtrip to watch the Canton Charge play today.  They’re affiliated with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Anyway, I was actually surprised he decided to go because he struggles with all the loud noise amd it takes a lot out of him.

As dinner ended tonight, I reminded him that he owed me 9 minutes. 

He became agitated but it seemed more like he was overwhelmed by the idea.  That being said, it lasted but a minute or two. 


After a couple of minutes, he buckled down, put his headphones in and turned his music on.  He took on his homework like a champ and even continued for a bit after the timer went off. 

You know, I’m not expecting this to be easy but this is definitely bigger than baby steps in the right direction. 

I made sure he knew how proud I was of him but didn’t overdo it because he doesn’t like that. 

Either way, I’m celebrating this victory and I really am proud of him.  ☺😊
