dentist for autistic young people

january 13 2010

Some people honor the 13th even when it's not friday from the bottom of their heart.
One of my sons was confronted with a flat tyre of his bicycle and he had no money ready to go with the bus.
The children had to go to the dentist, so the bicycle was a great help to deal with the fear that this young person has.

My autistic son took the safe way.
He went along with all the preparations until it was too late to start to change his mind.
He just sat down and told us he was not going.

Well, we arranged that he'll go with me in february, told the dentist that in case he'll come along my son will get that appointment and the dentist will have a quick look in my mouth as a gesture and I'll make a new appointment for a proper check up.

It's the best way to deal with this, because when my son refuses again we won't loose money on a skipped appointment.

I've asked before for a special afternoon each half year for autistic young people only.
I don't think there needs to be much difference between normal check ups, but my son would feel far more comfortable going to something for autists.

When they came back there was a bit of thin snow coming down, but in the afternoon we got a nice snowshower, which turned the street and the black spots on the pavements white again.
The world looked whitewashed again.
