This is a picture of my son, Augustus, hanging out with my younger brother, Scott. Scott has Fragile X and is both non-verbal and low-functioning. He has many, many unspoken rules about sitting on his bed with him. I myself am only allowed on the far edge corner of the bed and rarely for longer than 2 minutes. Scott lets Gus sit next to him for a half an hour, once a week while they watch his iPad. I like to think they speak the same language.
