Autism & An Interview: Part II
It's Thursday! I used to post about autism each and every Thursday, but now, I post what I can, when I can, and when I feel I have someone worthwhile to share!
So, today, I have Caleb for you, up close and personal, with an interview!
In May 2014 I interviewed Caleb to try to show him for who he is, autism & all!
His answers were brilliant and hilarious! He said Tater Tots taste like factory, and mustard tastes like sunshine! : )
He has grown and changed a lot (a lot!!!) in the year & a half since then! He doesn't think in colours quite like he used to, but he has improved verbally by leaps and bounds, and has really started to understand how to control how he reacts to situations (he still can get very, very upset, but much less frequently than he used to), and he is learning to communicate better at school verbally and through writing (we refer to his school journal in the interview).
I hope you take the 3 1/2 minutes to watch the interview, you'll love it! Caleb is a goon! He is really so sweet and funny, and I love how hard he works to be the best he can be!
I hope you enjoyed the video! Please comment (here or on YouTube) if you watched it! Share our own stories of people in your life with autism! Spreading facts and data is important for people to understand with their minds what autism is, but getting to know the people with autism, well, that will change peoples' hearts.
