The Autism Spectrum is a large and diverse spectrum. It has been said that once you have met one autistic person, you have only met one autistic person. This is because each one is so unique. There is no one issue. There is no one answer. There is no one therapy. In addition, what is an issue/answer/therapy today may not be the same tomorrow. However, there is one fascination for Jackson that appears to be consistent throughout the entire spectrum.
The fascination is the carwash. I have to assume that it is sensory stimulation overload. The sound, the speed, the vibrations, and the lights are a sensory delight. Jackson not only requires that we drive through at least one car wash per week, but he takes great pleasure in frequently watching videos of carwashes. Therefore, we thought we would share some of Jackson’s favorite carwashes.
Husband, father, coffee connoisseur and lover of all things hockey. At 51 I sometimes wonder have I done enough. I have been married to my best friend for 30 years. She knows all my faults and loves me anyway, As a father of “almost always” perfect boys, I am always surprised at what life has to offer. It is messy, scary, thrilling, and always fun.
