A description of a successful ABA therapy graduate. Initially diagnosed as Autistic, he is a 2E child (twice exceptional - In the Autistic Spectrum and Profoundly Gifted). A brief description of his path to enrichment and excellence as laid out by the therapists and by, mostly, his Mother - his Chief Instructor.
Both, my mother, and Alex's mother (my wife), are from Japan.
------Alex was born in the year of the Golden Dragon (Nov 2000) ------

Home Schooling - Memorable Events In Life
Song: Time In A Bottle
Artist: Jim Croce
Besides living your life well...
and steadily walking the correct path
to self actualization...
it is in being able to give these
principles to living life well to others
that lead to a full life for all involved...
and of the beauty of the adventure on that path.
There is, of course, nothing profound about this.
It is basic common sense.
We, however, sometimes forget the important things
in life as we let the day to day operations occlude...
and sometimes override, our overall goal.
As we grow from childhood...
everyday memories get lost in the jumble
of repeated experiences.
It is the anomalies in life that are remembered...
and those of special connections with others...
things that are so special that they stand out.
My memories of my Father
(died in Feb 2011)
(young Alex in picture)
consist mostly of when I was still very young.
(His death prompted me to write three subsequent articles)
