I'm noticing a new level of maturity in my autistic son. On Friday night I dropped him off at Xtreem Teens at the community center. This was not a Special Pop event (activities designed for people with disabilities), but one for regular kids. The activity was tie-dying a shirt and he said he wanted to go. He made it clear he didn't want me hanging around and he could be there in the group by himself.
Then later when I picked him up, I drove through McD's and got him some french fries. His sister asked him for one and he gave her one without complaint. And then another. I was stunned. He was sharing near-sacred fries with his sister?
