“If you want autistic kids to be interested in interesting stuff, then show them interesting stuff.”
Temple Grandin said that when I saw her speak this summer at Northwestern University. It sounds so redundant, but that is what makes it perfect and simple. Go out and do cool things! Whenever I get the chance to add to Jasan’s internet (brain) to fill more web pages (experiences) I do my best to go for it! He remembers everything, and he is constantly connecting things together. A friend of mine knew that he would love to check out this CAT skid loader that he was utilizing on a job site. He invited us over for Jasan to check it out and to take a little ride with him.
Once inside for a few minutes, he started to feel at ease and realized how cool this piece of equipment really was…
This photo cracks me up every time. 😉
