Silent Sunday: Little Thinkers, Big Thoughts


Today TMR honors our littlest thinkers.

Enjoy their  energy and spirit.

Here’s some of what they’re thinking:

“I want to be a doctor when I grow up, and I will cure autism.  Just not Patrick’s autism…we still need that autism pass at Disney…”

“I like to help him because I love him and he loves me.”

“He hugged me!  It felt so good.  Ronan never hugs me, so this was very special.”

“My friend asked me why he talks funny, so I just told her ‘because he’s my Boo!'”

“I’m so glad that my brother could go up the slide and follow me.”

“I got to teach my brother how to use his alt chat so it could help him to talk.”

“I love him very much because he is so nice.  He lets me play with his toys.  He let me borrow his iPad.  I like to help him because he is so nice. I help Ronan all the time.”

“Reading is my poetry”

“I saw a kid eating jelly beans today. I told him those aren’t good for him.”

“My hobby is climbing trees!”

    I also wanted to mention a Study for Siblings of Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, conducted by graduate students at the California
    School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University in San
    Francisco. To be eligible, siblings must be between the ages of 9-11 and have parental permission. Participation consists of filling out one questionnaire for parents that should take a total of about 5 minutes and two questionnaires for children, which should take approximately 25 minutes.
    Here is the Link:

    The siblings deserve a separate chapter in every book on
    autism… When I was nearly collapsing with exhaustion while caring for my ASD son, it was the sheer determination not to put the burden on my wonderful older
    daughter, that gave me strength to push forward…
    My daughter is now 16 and has a summer job as a camp councilor at the local Y,
    working with 3-5 year olds. She can’t get enough of her little campers, and
    she is marveling every skill they have, and she can’t wait to go back to
    work every week… No wonder, since her brother was so low functioning at
    that very age, and she was bewildered at the lack of reciprocity and
    suffered silently… I hate autism for that. The siblings are the unsung
    heroes, and they deserve so much compassion from the society for what they
    had to endure.

    I can’t read this without weeping. Hearing my daughter explain to a kid in the playground why she recovered and how we are still working on her brother yesterday tore my heart out.
