An Autism Diary

A day in the life of David Hartley

Proud Mommy Moment

Chick-fil-a playground
David took a small child under his wing and gently, carefully, and lovingly helped him through the playground and helped him do all he wanted to do while playing. David helped the little guy climb, crawl safely through the tubes, held on to him when he wabbled so he wouldn’t fall, and looked out for him the entire time the little boy was there. Later, when two little girls came in, he started doing the same for them. ❤
Said he’s a caring babysitter and was watching out for them and keeping them safe and happy. ^_^
Considering David’s struggles with impulsivity and his increasing preference to be in his own little world vs acknowledge those around him, this was quite a huge moment for him. ❤


  1. Hooray! What an encouraging moment.
