We got his baby tooth!
I was settling the bill while chatting with the assistant dentists. They offered rice crackers to Nathan to ensure he wouldn’t bite his lips after the anesthesia. With such a yummy reward, Nathan quickly memorized their names and properly looked, called their names to ask for more crackers. Even I was amazed.
I told them Nathan has autism and just two years ago he couldn’t ask for anything, was oblivious to people and didn’t even have intentional speech.
They were not convinced Nathan had autism. They have worked many special needs kids in dentistry, they said and Nathan definitely didn’t look like he has autism 🙂
The social skills the kids pick-up from the Son-Rise Program makes a huge difference!
