I'm writing to say, "Thank you," for giving my son such a wonderful experience. He had the time of his life. More importantly, however, he came home with new skills, and new friends. We are using the group process at home to facilitate discussion and minimize tantrums and yelling. The day after we brought him home from camp, he was sitting in group (at our coffee table) with appropriate body language, LISTENING to the issue at hand. I'm emphasizing listening because my Aspie son, who before camp, never maintained eye contact or used non verbal cues to show he was paying attention, was looking at us and nodding to show he understood, and NOT INTERRUPTING. We are very encouraged by this and plan to continue using the group process between now and next year when he goes back to Talisman for camp!
