The Continuing Story

Today my autistic son (18) started at a new place for daycare/workexperience.
One of his sisters offered to bring him, but he accepted her presence only until the busstop.

As I had the chance to go and visit someone important to me, I left home soon after he left, but kept in contact in case he would return.
He stayed.

After he came home he had a big smile on his face.
He was relaxed and happy he'd gone. A bit proud too.

After his former experience he was very hesitant to be involved in a new experience to spend time outside home with strangers.
But he likes baking and as this is a backery...

Compared to his former daycare this one is smaller, less chaotic, less noisy, and the people are more relaxed and more focussed on giving compliments for small things than making people accomplish things.

He's happy to be able to go next week.

What a relief!!

I've tried to keep as much stress far from him and thsi means I've succeeded.
Don't ask how mcuh effort that took.
