About Me

In June of 2014 my family learned that my 4 year old son was autistic. This is a window into our world. What it's like day in, and day out for an autistic child.

Up and Over the Gates (again)

Justin has taken climbing over the gates to a whole new level.

What was a once in awhile thing, has turned into an obsession.

The gate he tries to go over the most is the one that leads to the other part of the house.

So yesterday, I took one of my wooden gates and put it above the other gate, it worked.

I also noticed how content he became after I did that. His whole demeanor changed, and he was relaxed and calm for hours.

I think this goes to show how much (all) children need boundaries. Also, boundaries seem to be a comfort rather than an inhibitor.
