The last few weeks have been chances for new experiences.  Mom went to Austin to train on RPM with Soma.  She came back invigorated to make more of a difference working with me and other kids.  Must have myself included because I am also benefitting from what she learned.  Soma talked such wisdom. 

Even though I can communicate by typing, there can be many other things my Mom can work on.  My small theory is that I'm picked to make other people aware of what is possible for everyone.  We are making a difference.  Using RPM to work on other skills is important. 

Once I was able to type Mom was really proud, but there is more to work on.  Taking the time is yearned for.  Some of the things we have used RPM with are piano, drawing, writing and dictation.  These things are skills often neglected.  I'm actually pretty good at piano.  I need more practice if I'm going to write love songs someday.  Presently the songs perform only in my head.  I've also pointed working with my incredible tutor, Miss "P".  Mom hired her to come work with me on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Gave learning how to ride a bike a try this summer also.  It was a hard school.  Finding the right bike seemed like the hardest part of the process.  Right away I felt comfortable with my bike.  People were impressed how quickly I picked up on it.  I was trying to impress the boy who was my assigned helper.  The whole process was awesome. 

Meeting new goals has made my summer great so far.  Was hoping awesome things would happen this summer and they have.  You just need to give things a shot.  Autism doesn't stop me anymore!

  2. "Autism doesn't stop me anymore." Can I just say how much I love that statement? I enjoy reading your stories, and love knowing you want to learn to play the piano, ride a bicycle and write songs. What else do you have interest in learning or doing?
