One of my sons is a visual thinker and a verbal processor. Yesterday, he told me he wants his life to change. I asked him, “What does that look like?” He drew pictures with his words while I wrote them down in an outline. On a projection screen in his mind’s eye, he would like to see some areas of his life differently. In a burst of earnest passion, he added, “It’s not like I’m asking for a pony ride to Mars or something”.
His image impressed me. This young man knew the expression was fantastical and impossible. He’s also confident to ask for the possible. The Autism Society of North Carolina plays an important role in realizing my son’s goals.
