We have been working for a few years on getting “Buddy” to look at your eyes when he is talking to you. This is something that is very common with those on the Autism Spectrum. He is ten years old and has Asperger’s Syndrome which is on the Autism Spectrum. Well yesterday, Buddy and I were at the store. He was talking non-stop. He ran into the end of an aisle and I said that he needs to watch where he is going. Not missing a beat…he says, “Well, you are the one that taught me to look at your eyes when I talk…” So funny!
