I remember listening to a radio programme where a so called autism expert argued that autistic children (no stereotyping there then) struggled to feel emotions for other people or things. As a result they would mostly appear cold and have little empathy.
This morning our son looked up at a rainbow and looked really sad. He just stood and looked and looked. After a couple of minutes a second rainbow began to appear and our son smiled.
“Even a rainbow should not be alone and now he’s got a friend”.
No more words needed.
