When We Give Our Kids the Opportunity They Can Work Hard and Reach a Higher Potential
"You know how we say autism families don't take things for granted? This is what we mean. E is 6.5. Fine motor skills are so very far behind. He can't write yet or draw a square. And honestly those things don't concern me as much as the self-care fine motor issues. Opening packages, dressing, feeding himself with a utensil. People have no idea how hard our kids have to work to be able to accomplish these tasks consistently. There are so many therapies that can help, but so many do not have access to those therapies. He has been doing this program for about a month and is now zipping independently, but I want you to be mindful of how much effort it still takes. When we give our kids the opportunity they can work hard and reach a higher potential. It is so exciting to see him meet these milestones, even if they're met on a different timeline than that of his peers."
