I wanted to share this little story with you all. My daughter loves to write books, and create therapy for her brother Amin. Also, she makes little books for him as well. Every single day we have new books created and stapled together. I told her she needs to start writing on her computer because she is using up so much paper. (Like save the tree mentality)
This morning as I was cleaning up before they got up I came across with this book she made. I was just about to put it in a “treasure box”, when the illustrations and words cut my eyes. By the time I finished reading it ,tears were rolling down my face. I realized that I didn’t know how she really feels about autistic kids until now.
So here it is, I am copying it with all the spelling errors to show how authentic it is. I tried to scan it but it was written with pencils on the lined paper and it is truly a mess when I scan it. The first page will be scanned since that is a white paper as a cover. I hope you will enjoy this 8 years old writings. I feel really blessed, both of my kids are my gifts from God.
Where the Lost Words Go
a story about autistic kids
Dedicated to: Amin my wonderful brother
Have you ever wondered how would you express yourself if you didn’t know how to talk?
Have you ever imagined the world without any communication? Not knowing what your loved ones feel, to express where you hurt what you want.
Were you ever in a foreign country not speaking their language, and not understanding what they say.
There are only a few questions you need to consider when you meet an autistic child who can’t talk.
Autistic kids feel like they are in a foreign country and can’t understand things. So, we should treat them nicely, firmly and make them feel at home. Help the kids with autism, open doors to a new world. Help them to rise over the rocks. Make autistic children live in peace, especialy autistic kids.
“How are you?” this shows you care. Some autistic boys and girls are scared of people, because they think other people can hurt them.
Even with all their behavioral issues, they are blessing from God. You have to be patient, gentle, and kind to kids with autism. Than you might help them to be high function..
Autistic children have rights to do every thing they can. They can make their bed, tie their shoes, put on clothes,make sandwich and much more.
Autistic children have to be treated like royalty. Even other kids have to be treated like their autistic siblings, but most attention goes to autistic kids.
Usually when you meet an autistic child, you hold out your hand and say Hello.
These kids who can not speak are God’s creation. It is very rude and mean to harm such a fragile being. Even my super strong 6 years old autistic brother is fragile, and goes black and blue when he is hit and kicked or pulled. Amin my brother is high functioning because we “took him out into the world”.
Amin plays nicely with me and others too. This is a good sign that your child is getting more sociable. I also want to share with everyone stories about me and Amin, that can teach you something.
One day Amin was picking a movie to watch. He said “this one”. So, I said “ok Amin “. I put it down and Amin said ” Give me!” Benefit from this , they express their needs and wants.
I got Amin a toy turkey. Mom asked Amin what a turkey say?.. He knew it say gobble gobble, but he said “how do you do?”
Amin was joking
Three Little Stories
I was putting little Amin to bed and told him 3 bedtime stories, and he fell fast asleep.
At the zoo we saw Amin’s favorite animal, the turkey. He put his finger in the cage and the turkey bit Amin’s finger. Amin cried, but his finger wondered back to the cage.
Pop – a – Boo
I covered Amin with two covers and all his pillows.(believe me he had a lot), and some stuffies. He popped out when I told him too. Then the third time I got worried he didn’t pop out, than a minute later he popped out!
Goat and Amin
We were at the petting farm when Amin was playing with a goat. Mom was talking to the caretaker and I was petting the goat. Amin came back with no buttons on his shirt. The goat had his meal, shirt buttons.
These stories you just read have benefits, we see how much we love our autistic siblings, and how much fun we can have with them. It is easy to see the dark side of things, but you may choose to see the bright side.. that is much more fun.
