These are socks I bought my daughters for St. Patrick's Day. Most people see cute Snooppy socks. But autism parents? We see something else. At least I did. Behavior. Meltdowns. Reports from school of a very bad day. Maybe a call for early pick up. Or worse, maybe a restraint or hold. Do you see it? Click the jump.
This little bugger. The stupid, plastic attachments that are all over socks. If you don't find every single one and remove it completely, it can really hurt your foot. You or I would stop, take off our sock, pull it out and carry on with our day. Your kids, my kids, might not be able to do that. They would feel pain, an annoying scratch and not be able to tell us with simple words.
This is autism. Tiny reminders all day long of all the things that can go wrong and be harmful for our precious kids.
Who else talks about this but us at Age of Autism?
