Its great when they get those little things mastered that you never knew when you'd see them.
We were away on holiday for the weak last week to a place we go regularly,they have a resident kids magician and entertainer who has been there as long as we have been going(5 years)DS who is almost 10 and has autism actually realised this time what he was all about and managed to laugh along with the other kids,including his 7 yr old brother and 2 1/2 yr old sister.It was the first time he actually realised what it was all about and that it was fun.
Thankyou everyone. She does have a bag of nice hair stuff that her sister bought her. Both of her sisters have been very good at helping her out. She is on a guide holiday this week and wanted to be able to tie her own hair back for some of the activities although the guiders would have helped her. She still needs a bit mare practice to get it looking really nice but it is presentable and she was really chuffed with herself. I'll get her some more hair stuff when she gets back. A bit off subject I know but I'm hoping this holiday will help with her social training. see lack of friends thread
