    1. Thank you. Yes it’s such a good/positive way of looking at it. I did put some of these quotes on my son’s wall. Until he pointed out rather pedantically that he was dyslexic. So rather red faced I took them down and now trying to get his iPad to have them as a mp3 file so he can play them. We love Spongebob to.

  1. Good quotes.

    “For all autistic people it mustn’t any longer be about what we can’t do, it’s got to be about what we can do” – Chris Packham <—especially this one. ALWAYS 'yes you can' instead of 'well,maybe we'll try something easier'.

    Even with non autistic children … always challenge them. To fly higher, be stronger, to reach new levels…..
