Son's therapist and I have been brain storming ways to socialize him without putting him in the Autistic Group, which we both think he is too high functioning for. (can I get anymore Run-on with that sentence?!?!?)
One suggestion that she had was Home Depot.
Huh? On the first Saturday of each month they have a clinic for kids. No registration required, just show up between 9 and noon, they provide the child with the project and an apron. Best thing: IT'S FREE! .
Yes, I said FREE!
We showed up for the August clinic and Son loved being able to build the project. I wasn't allowed to help him but the Home Depot Girl could.
Some Glue, nails and hammering
Some SERIOUS concentration!
And Son walked away with a school bus pencil holder
and a certificate.
We are hoping to go back in September to build a football holder.
Home Depot definitely gets my seal of approval!
Thanks Home Depot!
