Generalising Social Skills

Typically Nathan is ready to play with volunteers who have been trained to respond the Son-Rise way. He is generalising social skills that he has acquired in his Son-Rise playroom, and applying to other non-Son-Rise people around him.
Grandfather, Lolo Hermie, is spending Christmas with us. I was surprised to see Nathan giving him a big smile, asking Lolo to blow fart kisses in his tummy, then asking for a piggy-back ride. That’s Nathan’s way of saying, “I want to play with you, come play with me!”

He is surely taking steps out of his world of autism, into our world of social interaction! God is Good!
