Example text

When faced with an autistic child with a strong fixation, some people will try to redirect the child's interests, even to the extent of removing all objects of the fixation from his environment. 4: My Space Adventure. Evan had driven a car, but he had never been to space. In this case, I very loosely based the story on a video the kids liked to watch, but I put Evan in the place of the hero. This was definitely a stretch of the imagination. Glen loved this story, too, even though he wasn't in it.

As for the lessons contained in the pages and pages of cartoons I had already done, they were still available. Periodically, Evan and Glen would spread out the notebooks and read, reminisce and chuckle. I am not an artist, and I'm not really even a cartoonist, but I am an engineer. I devised a very mechanical, reasonably repeatable method for drawing cartoon characters to represent members of my family. Drawing objects is easier than drawing people for me, but I can certainly find examples in Evan's language books where a picture looks only vaguely like the object it represented.

Perhaps on some level, these are the same things that make Lego so popular with autistic children. Left to his own devices, Evan would build the model according to the instructions, and if it had wheels, turn it over and spin them. Glen also built kits, but when they came apart (as, with Glen, they inevitably did) he put them together in different ways, though always as vehicles. He stuck the little mini-figures in where he needed pilots, but he never actually played with the people... until I got the Lego Pirate Ship.
