Yes, he was really incredible and the children have talked a lot about the whole experience. I know they will remember it for a long time. We look forward to returning - we thought a spring or summer concert perhaps - with Xxxxxxxxx in tow!Thanks again.
Sometimes.And sometimes not.I have close experience on an autistic child. Prior to this, I held strong beliefs that this was an excuse for poor parenting, lack of discipline and many other shortcomings. I have changed my mind. Whilst there are many who who use this label as an excuse for poor behaviour (by parent and child), there is a minority who have really do appear to have this condition. Shouting doesn't help. Long explanations don't help. Occasionally, a diagram or comic-strip cartoon might help, but not often. Sometimes he is stuck in a bubble, very lonely and unable to find or communcate with planet earth. If it is due to parenting, I am sure his parents would dearly listen to any sincere advice of experience. The one thing in his favour is that he will sit through an organ concert in near silence (classical or light music). Music appears to be the one path that is open between him and others.Simon
