Zak is nearly 3 years old but he is far from a typical toddler and rarely does things a normal toddler does. I feel sad at times that we miss out on so many moments. I have just experienced a really wonderful moment and not one I thought we would ever witness.
Zak came up to me and brought me a book he has been doing this for a few weeks, but normally takes it off me as soon as he has given it me. He came and sat next to me so I thought I would try and read with him, something he doesn’t let me do.
Today he not only sat down with me and let me read the book, he also let me discuss the animals in the pictures. Better than that he saw a cow and made a moo noise.
This was a very magical moment of autism that we rarely see.
