Making a Connection with Your Child with Autism
Lynda and David, parents of Wynston, had to adjust their expectations of his behavior and are careful not to second guess components of interactions with their son that may seem typical. They focus instead on their connection with their son and find tremendous satisfaction in watching him engage with his environment and the people in his life.
"...the little things that you see...when he goes down a slide...happy and smiling. That kind of joy that you see from any child is enormous for parents. When you see it from your autistic child...it's tremendous."
— Lynda, Mother of Wynston
