Penelope Trunk on Social Skills Boot Camp

Penelope Trunk on Social Skills Boot Camp

Here's a link you guys definitely need to be clicking. It's a great read by one of my favorite writers, Penelope Trunk. I love lurking on her blog and I found myself laughing over how my kids can read each other when they get in cahoots to go create some mischief.

Sometimes they spend so much time scripting YouTube and Netflix movies with each other that I find myself periodically memorizing the movie lines as well (including in other languages - LOL). It's mad fun when the wee people finish their sentences for each other or crack up laughing when one forgets his lines.

Mr. Autism got Mr. PDD-NOS scripting, which turned out to be a huge boon regarding my two speech delayed sons improving their vocabulary. Too bad their common sense/comprehension hasn't caught up with their catch phrases yet (LOL). We're working on that, but it may take a while and several really good movies to switch their gears into place.

They're smart but easily distracted kids who habitually absorb what they decide is useful and casually disregard the rest no matter how hard you try to get them to hang onto useful material. Of course, if they happen to find it aids and abets a bit of cool mischief they will look into the subject matter again. This is why I frequently include them in everything I do. You just never know what event is going to push their "desire to learn" button. ;-)

I'm grinning the cool aid grin because it's neat to discover Penelope chatting about her girlfriend Melissa, who also has Asperger's Syndrome, completing her sentences (among other things). Reminds me of my boys being close and the best of friends...

Very cool post...  :-)
