Back to School!

Cutie is currently getting ready for his first day of second grade!

He is very excited and he has an amazing teacher- she made "magic confetti" to help the kids sleep through the night the night before school and she has one of those contagious smiles with lots of energy- he is going to have a great year!

He was so excited that he was running down the stairs to show me his spiffy outfit an he says "it looked like there were more steps... but there weren't".  He is ok aside from a small bruise, but this reminds me that another important topic that I need to write about!

Kids with autism usually have poor proprioception which can cause clumsiness and when they get excited, their proprioception seems to diminish further.  I plan to write a full article about the challenges of poor proprioception especially when coupled with ADHD in the next few weeks.

For today I need to work on some new visual cues to help him and other kids adjust to their new routines!
