Blogs filled with interesting perspectives this morning. Came across this one from The Washington Times by Jean Winegardner.
SILVER SPRING, Md. — I spend a great deal of time looking for progress in Jack, my son with autism. My family, his teachers and his therapists work incredibly hard to help him learn how to work around the deficits that come with his autism. Because we, as parents, live with tiny, incremental changes every day, it's hard to see how far our children come over a course of months.
I was reminded of this last week, when Jack's speech-language pathologist showed me some testing scores and explained how they related to the same test that she'd given him two years ago. He has made incredible improvements in his expressive and receptive language, which got me thinking about what else he's done over the past 12 months.
