Yeah, the autistic boy I work with is 6 years old. I picked him up for the first time yesterday at school and took him to his house for his ABA therapy. The girl who is training me takes another route and when we were going my way (which is different) he was going "WRONG WAY WRONG WAY." Even when he got in my car and his mom was buckling his seatbelt he was looking at me like "why are youuuu here?!" since the girl who has been his therapist has been with him for 4 or 5 years now. It was cute. I'm glad he didn't go into full out tantrum mode when this all happened. So I am totally feeling you with the routine. :)

My mom worked with an autistic boy when we lived in Colorado. She loved working with him. It was amazing how much he paid attention to detail. He knew all the ingredients for mashed potatoes and helped my Mom make them when we invited him and his family for dinner.

They are amazing. It's amazing how quickly they can pick up on new material. The boy I work with can have the new stuff down fairly well after 2-3 runs through it. I've definitely learned a lot working with him & I really love working with him!

That's my baby - she is super smart. I have to be careful what I say around her because she picks up so fast.

My eldest is an auditory learner (she also has a super high IQ but not autistic - or not enough for me to notice) and I used to get fooled by saying things not realizing she was paying attention. It gets her in trouble in school sometimes until the teachers figure it out she is listening.

The whole way the brain learns and processes information is just... well.. mind blowing *wink*

One of the guys on my drama team has a son who is autistic but he isn't teachable. If you put toys in front of him he isn't able to play with them. He might knock stuff over but that's about it. He's not able to express himself and often lashes out and hits people. It's very sad.
