Wordless Wednesday! Such a great time for bloggers to post pictures instead of words. Today I'm posting both.
The little boy in the picture is Ryan, one of my nephews. He is wordless everyday. He has autism.
Ryan has difficulty expressing his wants, needs, feelings, desires and such. Sometimes, like most children with autism, he hits. This shot shows a bruise on my arm after one of his episodes.
Ryan is now 8 and is involved in intensive therapy. His mom - my sister Lorri - works fulltime with Autism Speaks.
For bloggers, it's fun and exciting to be wordless on Wednesdays. Being wordless can't be fun for Ryan.
