Corbin: The Autism Whisperer

The Autism-Whisperer

Sometimes when I can’t get Brian to answer me or even acknowledge that I exist I’ll absentmindedly mutter something along the lines of, “I guess you’re in your own world today.”

Corbin heard me say this under my breath the other day and answered, “Yes Mom.  He is in his own world.  He likes to go there because he is King of that world.  He likes being King and he doesn’t have to figure everything out in that world.  He already knows it all.  Nothing is confusing there.”

Honestly, it makes perfect sense to me when he put it into those terms.  If I were Brian and the world was so overwhelming and confusing I would want to go where it was more calming too.  I think Corbin is on to something….
