from the new church we've been visiting. They have a 9yo son who is autistic. He happens to go to the same school as G, and in a few years, they'll probably be in the same classroom.
She invited us over to talk and for our kids to get to know each other.
She has her son's room set up as a safe area and it gave me some ideas with how to deal with G's room. :clap: We sat in the bedroom and visited while the boys played in the "safe area" . Even though G is 4,and her son is 9, they are very similar in behavior,and they sat together (yet in their own separate worlds) very content playing and it was cute.
She gave me a pediatric stroller her son has outgrown, but G is pretty small for it, maybe next year it will work for him.
as a bonus, they have a few kids the age of my 12yodd and 15yods,and they seemed to hit it off pretty well!
