Mom's reply was as follows:
Oh, my daughter was doing her Valentines, and I said to her, "You don't have enough here. There are more kids on your class list than this." She said to me, "Oh, I forgot the autism kids," but I don't think she understands what she's saying.
I'm sure the other children in her daughter's class benefitted from this mom's intervention and I'm sure her daughter did as well. She also made my day! So many well-meaning adults feel awkward discussing disabilities--it was great to see a mom who is willing to both tackle a situation head on and to seek out the information she and her daughter need to address things in a sensitive, informed manner.
