At the soft play area today, I was just watching ds and dd playing. DD being the social butterflies she is, was after making friends and soon was playing with a girl of her age. Ds was playing by himself again as usual. Suddenly dd brings her friend over to ds and says-

Meet my big brother ds
The girl asked ds "what is your name"?
Ds sceams -no
Dd:my mum says ds don'ts talk much.
The girl- what is your name?
Ds-"ds" in a very squeaky voice
The girl- what is your name
Ds- "ds" in a very clear voice

It made me so happy to see ds responding to a child especially a complete stranger. He normally ignores any child talking to him and this was completely unprompted. I had to share!!

How absolutely lovely....perhaps he wants to talk to them just doesn't know how to. We taught my ds and his whole class to say "Hello, my names DS, do you want to play?"....they all say it now to each other and it has been a HUGE help.

Thank you everyone, it's so nice to be able to share with people who understand. Ds most of the times responds to adult, but completely ignores children.
