Thank you for sharing this, Jennifer. I cannot imagine how frustrating it must be to have to retrain your brain to make statements instead of asking questions. I am so glad, though, that you can better connect with your son.
Your statement about questions causing your son anxiety really made an impact on me. I am not on the autism spectrum, but I can understand that feeling. It is uncomfortable. So glad you will be able to move forward in communicating with him in a way that makes him feel secure. ❤
