I had “the talk” with my daughter. No not that talk! I spoke to her about how to explain autism to her friends. I began by showing her a short video about autism-What’s Up With Nick. She has seen it before but I wanted her to hear/see how the girl in the video explained it. She is a visual learner so I knew it would help. We went over a few basic responses and she came up with her own statement which basically says that, “his brain works differently so he communicates differently, plays differently, and he is really smart!” I couldn’t argue with that 😊. I told her that if her friends have more questions that she can’t answer, then she could always ask for help. I’m sure this won’t be the last “talk” that we have about this. I’m so pleased to be having this discussion with her.
