I have been reading books written by Temple Grandin lately. For those of you that don't know, she's a very successful woman with high-functioning autism. Her story is interesting and her books are all written from her perspective. I found out they made a movie about her so I watched it tonight. difficult child 1 was in the room with me on the laptop but stopped and watched it (without a single word from me). He made comments throughout the movie and when it was done he said "We HAVE to talk to her! We need to find her phone number" and he proceeded to google her. I asked him if he could relate to any of it and his response was "Duh, yeah, ALL of it. That's why we have to find her!" I found it interesting that he could see himself in the movie. I actually find it rather refreshing that he can connect some of her behavior and thinking to his own. It's very intriguing. I really wish I could take him to meet her but Colorado is quite a distance from us (most anywhere is financially undoable right now).
