Well we went to the Opticians on Friday after school to collect Daniel’s glasses. I am very pleased and excited to say that apart from going to bed, they have not left his face since! He absolutely loves them. He can see! He put them on in the shop and was so excited because he could see. He ran around the shop shouting “I can see” and we all applauded him. It was fab. I am so proud of him. He wore them to the cinema on Sunday to see Monsters University – a special Autism friendly screening. That went well. And he has worn them to school all week. He doesn’t take them off till bed time and they are the first thing he reaches for in the morning. It really is heart warming. To know that he can see now. It’s just great. He looks so smart. Here is a pic of him in his new specs:
I really hope that Daniel continues to enjoy wearing his glasses like this. He will gain so much from them. His whole world has now opened up for him. He can see and enjoy things he never imagined possible. He is much more confident in himself already. He moves about with more ease and confidence and is so much more sure-footed. I just hope that soon he will find the confidence to do stairs – now that he can see them! Thank goodness for good Opticians that are good with children with special needs. If any of you live in the South East then I thoroughly recommend Melina Joy of Heathfield. She was an absolute star.
