Loving the Eye Contact

Whenever Myles provides direct eye contact for any period of time, it’s a BIG DEAL for us.  There were times early in our autism-journey when Myles wouldn’t even respond to his name; any prolonged eye contact or focus during those days was about as uncommon as mermaids and unicorns! LOL

After reading an article that provides an explanation as to why kids with autism may avoid eye contact, I couldn’t help but thank God for the strides Myles has made.  Sure, we’re far from the end of the journey and his socially awkward moments are likely to increase the older he gets.  Still, it’s the small gains; indicators and reminders that God is in control which provide reason to celebrate.

Here’s Myles with his Speech Therapist, Heather Taylor at Cobblestone Therapy in Roswell.
