I got to go grocery shopping with my dapper dude today. He really likes going out and about, but because of his autism he hardly ever engages with other shoppers. If they come up to talk to him he ignores them, or looks at me like "Mom, what do I do?"
Today was different! An older man asked Hunter if he could have his hat and Hunter looked at him and smiled and shyly said no. The man laughed, and that made Hunter laugh. He was having a little conversation with him!
I'm so proud of the social progress he's making. He broadens his social circle a little more each week. He made good eye contact with his therapist this week, and even engaged them in silly games to get them to laugh.
I'm a proud mamma! 😊
