Today, at work a girl of maybe eight or nine was sitting next to our shop dog and happily talking to him, as many kids do. Then I saw her parents standing a few steps away holding hands anxiously, with tears of joy in their eyes. It turns out that their daughter is severely autistic and this was the first time they had ever heard her speak in full sentences. Simple things not being so simple MMT.

This made me tear up. I have an Autistic brother, as do many of my friends, and I can't think of how overjoyed this would make me.

Dogs are so much easier to talk to than people. It's so wonderful when a person breaks through silence, with or without the help of an animal.
