Alex at 2.5 years

Alex surrounded by a sea of strawberries.  He really enjoyed picking the fruits, and counted them one-by-one as he put them in his basket.

Autistic children are prodigies.  People who define themselves as normal view autism as inferior to their own level of thinking.  When, in all actuality, autism is a much higher, more complex order of thought; a more elaborate means of communication to which most are not accustomed.  The so-called “normal” people are too naive and too engulfed in their own ignorance to figure it out.

Alex loves Lego Bionicles!  He can build the most elaborate creatures of his own creation.  No directions necessary.  He creates these creatures in his mind and builds them to perfection!
