Fuzzy Baseball

Bryant’s mom desperately wanted her sons to bond. Today, the boys are buddies thanks to the work of Autism Society of NC staff.

When Bryant was 5, he struggled daily to interact with others and hid when other children came into his home. He didn’t even connect with his older brother. His mother desperately wanted her sons to have that special bond that so many siblings have.

Bryant’s family connected with the Autism Society of North Carolina, and one of our Autism Resource Specialists helped his mother advocate for his needs in school. A member of our direct-care staff taught Bryant how to interact with other children.

ASNC even helped the boys bond as brothers. With the direct-care staff’s help, they made up a game called “Fuzzy Baseball.” They now play this game every day, and their mother gets to see that special bond she had always hoped for.
