Skeleton for A Brother
My nine year old has just
recently been diagnosed NLD but looking back he has always been extremely
literal and makes us think twice before we use "sayings or
expressions". Steve was 3 when his newborn baby brother was brought home
from the hospital. The baby had a very sensitive "startle response."
After Steve accidentally slammed the toybox lid I said to him, 'Stephen, don't
make such loud noises. You made the baby jump out of his skin!" A look of
horror crossed his face and he exclaimed, "He shouldn't jump out of his
skin! He needs it to keep his bones inside!!"
