Autism. Painting and Winnie the Pooh

Bright Eyes came home with this painting, entitled 'Pilbara Series No 1' by his mischievous teacher's aide. They did it together, and after a few suggestions of what it was all about, Bright Eyes announced, "It IS Western Australia." 

K says that he reminds her rather of A.A. Milne's Winnie THER Pooh because of his capitalised announcements and his stocky frame. And yes, he does like honey.

Some of his current issues are: end of term anxiety, fighting with his brother (they both have to be FIRST at everything), a rash around his mouth and the ongoing battle over the toilet. However, we are seeing lots of good things too. Today he was able to be beaten at cricket with his dad and sister!
