Today is World Autism Awareness Day 2018 and although Oscar doesn’t have Autism I wanted to talk to you about something that happened yesterday, that has got me thinking…. Enjoying our Easter Sunday in a children’s playground, at the top of a very tall slide, Oscar, Alfie and Flo and their two cousins played together. They whizzed down at top speed laughing as they went. One after the other, loving every second of it and hurriedly they raced one another to get back up to the top to start all over again. Other children came and went and joined in with their game. I guess to those looking on, unless you looked REALLY closely, Oscar looked like any other child up there… a child simply having fun.
And in so many ways because he’s so capable, you might forgive someone for not noticing his differences except sometimes, when he does things that perhaps to an outsider looking in, would be deemed as unacceptable, you’d hope they’d understand. As Oscar stood at the top, he thought it was funny from time to time, to push his siblings/cousins down the slide. To them this was no big deal because they know Oscar. They know there is no malice in what he’s doing. That he’s simply having fun and encouraging them to have fun too. In fact I’d go so far as to say it wasn’t even a push as such, more his way of saying “It’s your turn now, off you go”… except obviously he hasn’t got the words to be able to say all that.
