I am sure many parents of autism spectrum children enjoy the unusual ways our children express themselves. I thought it might be fun to share some of Pamela's aut-isms and feel free to include the favorites of your child in the coments.
  • moccashoe for moccasin
  • towel robe for bathrobe
  • white cream for mayonnaise
  • binoculators which rhymes with elevator and escalator

Her newest word is thriller hole, the hole in the porch created by a knothole that fell out. She called it that because she finds it scary wondering what is in it.

And what lurks beneath our thriller hole? Take a peek . .

Love it! Space Cadet once called a dragonfly a "dinosaur butterfly".

G called weedwackers "wickywackers." Thriller hole is a new one though LOL!

Usually, we'll get a detailed description of the thing in question b/c he doesn't recall the name. "That thing that you open the door and put food inside and is cold" suffices. He's done a lot better with things like that, but as long as I know what he means, good enough!!
