      He is my favorite too! Your son sounds pretty bright. The schools will help now especially if an IEP is in place! And your kids are beautiful!

      Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. RFK

      Good idea to take it on a trip. Also remember that bright and direct lights distract them and make them feel uncomfortable. They are hyper-sensitive to the environmental stimuli and prefer calm and the meditative in a focused way. Focusing on music, videos and math calms them. Sometimes I had them sit in the back of the class because they would jump when someone behind them spoke or made a sudden sound. One thing to tell you is that with little effort they have no problem with completing courses with top grades. As I've said before they are truly brilliant individuals. Best of luck to you and your beautiful children.

      Think of the future. You never know what awaits around the corner.
