Utter Autism

June 20, 2008


Verbal manners are one thing we’ve always tried to teach Adrian.  He’s pretty regular about asking for things using a verbal approximation, the sign or the button for please.  But thank you is always required a prompt. 

Until the other day.  For the first time, Adrian thanked me for making his drink.  Without a prompt.  Without so much as a glance in his direction.  He looked me straight in the eye and signed, “Thank you.”

Now I’m the grateful one 🙂
