My daughter considers anything smaller than a quarter a "treasure." She has a fascination with making collections and an insane ability to memorize just about any book or movie. She is silly, compassionate and overly dramatic.
The beauty that Autistic children bring to our world is often overlooked. Our society is slowly starting to help accommodate the challenges that these children face. I am trying to be better about taking time to pick dandelions and "treasure" hunt with her.
This series of pictures is from the day that I realized that M was "different" than other kids her age. The pattern around her playroom was a meticulously crafted "path for the fairies." It was another year and a half before she was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome or HFA (High Functioning Autism).
Does your child have a favorite activity or hobby?
