We have had "un"official diagnosis' that Aiden has a high functioning autism spectrum disorder, likely Aspergers Syndrome, or perhaps a sensory intergration disorder. Which essentially means that among other things he experiences the world slightly different than the rest of us. His responses to some things are sometimes disproportional to whatever the stress is. All of us are learning what all that means and some things to help him thrive here at home and at school instead of conflict over behaviour.
Here is a photo I took of him the other day.
So I'm thankful, it's miraculous that this came about.
