What an adult might call ‘compassionate’, a child might call a ‘clown’!
Seven year old Cadence, who has Autism and other challenges, reminds us there can be much beauty seeing the world through a different lens.
It is common for an autistic child to reference, or say things, seemingly inappropriate, or seemingly out of context – providing us a wonderful opportunity to understand the child’s mind, to ‘follow the string’ – open yourself to the child’s mind; work out the child’s perception of their word of statement – they just might surprise you!
When I’m grown up and brave, I’m going to be a clown. A special clown. Special clowns look like normal people. They don’t wear clown soots (suits) or have red noses but they make all the sad and worried people happy.
