My Beautiful Speller

Last night I called out spelling words to Rooster. He kept missing the same one every time: Beautiful. I said, that one is tricky, let's see if I can help you come up with a trick.

It starts with Be, right? Like, "To be, or not to be."

And see the "aut" part? That is the same way we spell autism, and you know how to spell that.

So here is the perfect way to remember: Think: Be autistic, it's beautiful.

He smiled, and he got it right.

First thing this morning I asked him to spell beautiful. He said: "B-E..."

He paused a long moment, cocked his head.


Long pause, and a smile.
