Occasionally God and Buddha bless me and I am able to help a family. One family has Ray. Ray is diagnosed with Autism. His mother, also Joann, would like you to know how caring and loving he is and need I say cute. Joann would also like you to know that Ray has made her a better person. When I first spoke to Joann, Ray was not communicating but he was putting things in her purse. I said, "So put things under the covers in his bed." From there, Joann learned that the more interesting she made her world the more likely Ray was to join her in it - and - they were communicating. Ray is now talking more, often expressing his wants. Joann wanted me to meet Ray, and as much as I hope I do one day, I pointed out how important it was for him to be attached to her, not an empathetic stranger.
