I have a 9 year old son, who has ASD. He has almost total lack of cross midline communication (He can't get his limbs to communicate across the middle of his body.) His physiotherapist told me it is a miracle he can do up buttons on his own, and ride a bike.
Well, today, I taught him to do the one thing they told me he would DEFINITELY *NEVER* be able to do.
He learnt to tie his shoe laces! BY HIMSELF!!!!
For anyone who is looking for tips, we used this way
It's not how I tie mine, and it's not how I originally tried to teach him, but... IT WORKS!
