Autistic Boy’s Social Club

on October 25, 2013

Sounds like the title of a book. Or a sketch on Saturday Night Live. 

But in fact it is something Conor goes to each week. And no, they don’t call it that. It’s just what I call it. I’m not putting it down in any way, and think it is a great idea, and helpful for the boys. Maybe not my boy, but other boys. I can’t help but chuckle silently as some of the kids practice be as anti-social as possible (Conor), while others blurt out things at random. While I smile at the way each boy interacts in the group, the real lesson here is that no child with Autism is the same. Each display their sociability and personalities in different ways. Just like typically developing kiddos. 

One of the tenets of autism is difficulty in social interactions and relationships, which makes this a very good idea for a class. But still, it’s kind of funny. At least to me. Maybe that’s because my son is the least social person there and has very limited speech which hurts his ability to create relationships with the other boys. 

I mean come on, if you can’t laugh at the small things, you end up crying.
