Mafe Maria: Personal stories by autism parent mentor, Maria Stultz

Amazing Melissa

“Human Magnet” (a.k.a. Melissa) in action.

Out of the playroom, she told me that Joaquin’s eye contact was amazingly sustained, and the quality of the connection was the best she’s ever experienced with him. It was also nice to see that he didn’t disconnect with the physical interaction. Back in the summer, with Brandi, he would ism a bit after exchanges much milder than this.

This week, Melissa and Jessica have noticed Joaquin incredibly interactive but with much calmer energy than usual. In comparison to last time she saw him, Jessica noticed today that Joaquin wanted to chat and was able to stay connected and participant in their conversations. This is very interesting to me since I’ve felt contracted and not in great Son-Rise spirit for over a week…
