I just had to share this article. It is relevant to more than just autistic kids and their parents-- everyone could use some of these suggestions with their children in today's electronic age of iPods and texting at the dinner table.
And the segment on ABC's What Would You Do? is amazing! It just goes to show that awareness of autism is on the rise and that awareness is a great thing!
You may also remember my post on Dining Out... maybe I can stress less and eat out more now that diners are more understanding.
