My son is 11 years old. When he was 2, he was diagnosed with autism and at the age of 7 he received his first pair of glasses. He was excited and chose a pair he felt made him look like a spy. They had blue frames and made him look very handsome. Given his diagnosis, we anticipated some challenges. He is quite distracted and as such the glasses have been misplaced numerous times. They have been found in several interesting places. To name a few, we have found them under his bed, in the fridge, in the dog’s kennel and in a bowl of fruits…. Shortly after receiving his glasses, when having a tantrum he would throw them. They were flung across rooms, at people, at walls and once in a pool. This has resulted in having to replace his glasses 5 times in a year. Thankfully, this behavior was addressed and the glasses are no longer thrown in anger. We do however still find them in humorous places.
