My almost 12 year old high functioning autistic son just asked his father to look up science colleges so he can find the cure for diabetes for his sister.
I hope with all my heart he one day is capable of this goal. I will encourage it even if his reading level is just at a 4th grade level. He is smart just not so good with words and is heart is one of the biggest I know. Mind you he also as well as his twin brother also have seizures but he is going to find the cure for her before he finds a cure for them.
It just brought me to tears so I thought I would share it with you all.
