I was talking to him, mainly about how much the weather sucked (being an Aspie I’d much rather talk about dinosaurs or Sonic the Hedgehog than endure small talk, but I’m British so the weather is our typical go-to conversation.).I was also quite sad that day for reasons I won’t go into, but I carried on talking to him despite not being in a talking mood. As I talked, he said nothing, did not look at me, and gave me no indication that he was listening. Yes, it often gives us particular habits or interests unique to us.
Regardless of how strongly autism influences the child in question, don’t forget that they have a personality too. Brilliant lad, and I promise I’m not just saying that because his brain’s so similar to mine.
