What a powerful story you've told through your description of an autistic boy. You made him real through his actions. I wondered as I read it he is real and is your son. It seemed so because of your patience and tenderness with him.
We have a family in our church who have an autistic son. If this is not a true, your account is very believable. Excellent writing!
This is powerful, and does sound like it is a first hand account. I like the format you used. It makes it very easy to read, and gives gives it a conversational tone. Well done.
You paint a vivid and tender picture of the unique treasures and challenges of parenting a child with autism.
