My 3 year old son ,Brandon, used a fork for the 1st time today all by himself!!! Now, you are probably thinking that doesn't sound too special because your child could do that at a year old. But, Brandon has autism. Everything is a challenge for him to learn. It took countless hours of occupational therapy and lots and lots and lots of practice at home. Not to mention the melt downs, tears, and frustration. I'm so proud of my little man!!
