Utter Autism

Signing His Life Away

Adrian’s picked up a new habit.  If he finds a pen laying about, he’ll pick it up and sign his name to the nearest piece of paper.   We find mail on the counter with his signature.  He’s branded notebook after notebook.  And there isn’t a to-do list in the house that hasn’t been blessed with his autograph. 

While I’m happy to see him getting so much handwriting practice in, I can’t help but worry that someday he’ll be making his mark on the wrong dotted line! 😛


  1. I am a new user to this blog and to blogging in general and hope I am not breaking some ‘cardinal’ rule
    when I post this comment, so be patient with me 🙂 has anyone ever heard of the game Oregon Trail being
    loaded on the Dynavox? Thanks.

  2. Ha! I wonder if my son (with Autism) will ever do this? It is such a struggle to get him to sign his name to homework… Loved your post!
