My Non-verbal Son Can Write!

I mean, I’ve seen him write “Max”, and even “Mummy”, but to write this, from memory, with no spelling mistakes, when he’s never been taught *how* to write it?


There are no words that can even remotely describe how this makes me feel!

This could open up a whole new world for my lil Max.


*Does all the happy dances*

      It just opens a whole new world, you know? I keep walking past it and grinning like an idiot. 😀

      Petra, if my lil guy can make sure a huge turn around over the last 18 months, I’m sure yours can too. I never even thought he would be able to sleep through the night without a cocktail of medications, and he sleeps through (mostly) from 9pm-7am.Now he’s starting to talk, and… WRITE!
      He’s 6 and a half now, and I deferred his entry to school so is just coming to the end of Primary 1, in the ASD base of his school.
      *hugs* it really can get better x

      So glad I had my phone to hand to capture it! I can’t stop grinning every time I walk past it. 🙂

    And it isn’t even a small word! It’s two quite long words! This non-verbal world amazes me all the time. What a fantastic miracle, I really hope this is the start of a new way of communicating for you. Keeping everything crossed that one day we see a miracle like this!
    Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)

      Thanks Jane! Trust me, I *never* thought I’d see the day when Max would write anything. I also never thought he’d ever sleep through the night without a cocktail of medications on top of his nightly melatonin.Now both have happened! x
