I have been bringing Parker to Hip Hop Dance Class. He does not get used to new places to fast but I know he likes his teacher Anna that we found later is only 16. That’s the same age as Parker and she has an older brother who has Autism.
I know Parker really likes her and he has been good to her and only scratched her once. He smells you if he likes you. LOL. Anna is so kind to him and it is nice to see him socialize with someone that he is not used to seeing every day.
Everyone there loves him. The girls that are in the class always say hello to him when we go to the Pretzel Factory next door after class. They say they have a great time with him and they think he is so much fun to have in their class.
You know I have always been worried about acceptance and it is hard for me to socialize myself with anyone who doesn’t understand autism.
I actually made a friend at the dance studio. Everyone smiles and says bye to us when we leave and I get along with everyone. So far no one has tried to tell me what I should do with my son. That is something I found in the beginning of his life that annoyed us.
One day he will be dancing for us all in a show and he will be a perfect accent to the girls that practice hard every week.
Look for more of Parker Meyers at dance class coming soon.
