This is what happened when I took my son with #Autism, shoe shopping today

I wanted to update you fine folks on how our shoe shopping excursion went this afternoon. I’m so proud of Emmett because it didn’t go as planned but he adapted and worked through it. ☺

Emmett and I went to the Skechers outlet store, on a mission to find a very particular pair of shoes. There was no plan to deviate from what we know is working and didn’t want to try anything else.

We got there and discovered that they didn’t have his size but it could be ordered. He didn’t want to wait and also didn’t want the shoes he was currently wearing. The only option was to look for something else and he was actually eager to do that. I was really surprised by his willingness to do that.

He tried a few different pairs and settled on one he felt was super comfortable. He did really awesome and I’m incredibly proud of him. This is a big deal, especially for a kid with sensory processing disorder. ☺

So far so good. He’s still wearing them and is really excited to wear them to school in the morning. ☺

Check out the pictures below.. ☺
