Have you heard this saying? It's become a daily mantra for me.
This is probably one of my favorite pictures of my boy. You see, Max is... different. Max sees the details. In this picture, Max is looking at the details; Max is tasting the details; Max is feeling the details.
This is the beauty of Autism. Watching Max see the world through a different set of eyes. When he looks at the door, he sees the screws in the knob. When he goes outside, he sees the not the slide or the balls, he sees the dirt, the grass, the weeds.
Addendum (06.06.10) - Parenting Special Needs Online Magazine came across this post and were inspired by Max and decided to put him on their May/April 2010 issue of their magazine. Read about it here.
