Independence!!!!

We had a huge moment today! It may seem so little but for someone with autism this is a huge step.

So… Courtney went into the fridge today. This usually means she wants milk. I took a second to finish what I was working on and then went to go get her milk. I found her holding her milk cup and standing by the paper towels. I soon realized She was trying to get towels because something spilt in the fridge when she opened it! As a co-worker quickly pointed out when I shared this story, that is executive functioning which is very hard for kids with autism and she did it with independence! She is my superstar!
