Every Child is Unique

Recently I posted on Facebook: "Whether it is your own child, a friend, or client what word or phrase would you use to describe your All Star's biggest strength?" The responses were as unique as each child being described.

My son was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome/High Functioning Autism about a year ago. Many of his traits are "by the book."  He has major sensory issues, very literal, poor social communication, plus many other. He also loves to sing songs he's made up. He may have trouble telling me what he did today at school, but he can sing a song about various punctuation marks his teacher introduced in reading class. 

Kids are more than just their diagnosis. Each child has a unique personality. Whether a great story teller, talented singer, walking Google map, or a role model, these children are growing to be the wonderful person they are meant to be. They have special needs. They are loved.

Rachel H's son loves the exclamation point the most of all the punctuation marks!
