I have realized how much time i have spent on the negatives of my sons autism. How can you you feel good about yourself if you are thought of as broken and need to be fixed. I will continue get him any helps he needs for deficits. I am going to give more attention to his brilliance in certain areas. I will from now on encourage him in those areas. I want my son to see himself as a unique individual with special attributes that set him apart in a good way. I want those special qualities that he has like his extreme knowledge in certain areas to be the ones he concentrates on when he thinks about being on the autism spectrum.
