H has been working on a project for weeks and weeks…
I believe, however, that he has been planning it in his head for months.
The project has involved internet research, executive functioning skills such as planning and organizing tasks over time, sorting and collecting needed materials (both new and recycled), using “plan B” strategies and problem-solving, flexible thinking, relationship building, using tools independently (with support as needed), and even sewing, all held together with tonnes of duct-tape, nuts and bolts, hot glue, spray paint, ingenuity, and creativity!!
When special interests are supported with opportunity…
…innovation, problem-solving, and positive development are inevitable!
So… I suppose this is a bit of a teaser post, but H and I promise to post the big reveal very soon! I’ll bet you can hardly wait to see the results! It won’t be much longer, as the project is almost complete!
30 Days of Autism is a project designed to fight stigma, promote civil rights, and increase understanding and acceptance for those who process and experience the world differently.
