Conor Enjoys Canada Day Weekend Despite Autism

We have had perfect Canada Day weekend weather here in Fredericton and Conor has been outside enjoying it .... for the most part.  Some may not see autism as a disorder.  Conor though is severely affected by his autistic disorder including his sensitivity to sounds.  Walking across the bridge with traffic noise can be disturbing for Conor as these pictures show.  Other than that though Conor took full advantage and enjoyed the great outdoor weather.

It is obvious Conor is well on his way to adulthood. I see the start of a beard. Handsome guy.

FYI, do you have a Red Roof Retreat in your area? If not, maybe you could start one. The one down the road from me was started by a mom wanting respite for her own child. In a matter of a few years, she found sponsors.

Of course, it is not for full-time group living, but it is a model on how that could work.

In other words, if we wait on gov't to take the initiative, not much happens.

Just a thought.
