As Andrew gets older, his anxiety and nervousness appears to be getting worse. This summer I have him enrolled in a weekly class. It is a small class and is the perfect size for Andrew. He was so very excited to go the past two weeks but was very nervous. The entire first day he was there, he didn't take his fingers out of his mouth at all. (He puts his fingers in his mouth when he is nervous and has rising anxiety.)
I take advantage of every opportunity that I can to help him with his social skills. His social skills will only become harder for him to manage as he gets older. Therefore, the more that we can make an impact in that area now, the better.
This past Friday, he was very proud of his sun that he made:)
