Niam Jain: Having a child with Autism has many challenges, emotional battles, reciprocal love and cherished moments. Finding role models for my son has always been difficult. I am always looking for strong role models who possess the kind of qualities to make my
son become a better person. Finding role models for Niam Jain has been difficult. Lucky for me, Niam has a very loving older brother Rohan, who , on most occasions, and I say this loosely, you know how brothers can be, has been an exemplary example of behaviour, friendship and, “gamer. ” Yes it would be suffice to attribute Niam’s obsession with gaming to his brother. Thanks Rohan, we love you!
Niam Jain has always struggled in school. His comprehension, speech and language, is not at grade level. He attends an amazing special education class with extraordinary peers, who are amazing role models in speech, friendship and academics. They have taken Niam Jain under their wing, Niam is popular and loved.
What else could a mother ask?
Never ask this question, we moms, we always have an answer.
One beautiful day, I receive a Facebook message from a friend with a video of her gorgeous daughter. As any good friend I watched it. I was blown away, brought to tears and, I cried. I cried in happiness, love, admiration, relief, joy and for the word “development”. If you watch the video you will know why. Listen carefully …
The cutie pie in the movie says she wants to” paint like Niam”. This girl is typically developing, does not have Autism, and she wants to paint like my son who has Autism. I know you are probably thinking so what if Niam has Autism. If you are a parent with a child with Autism you can understand when I say I would have never in my wildest dreams think this could be possible. I am excited beyond words my little boy could be, IS , a role model for someone else. What I love most is the ability of this young child to see beyond the Autism and, focus on the abilities. It blows my mind there are people out there who feel my son is a strong Role Model. I am happy to the moon and back.
For all parents reading my blog, don’t fall in my trap, know anything is possible.
Autism Is Awesome!
