Was at NUS today to brief a group of students who had volunteered for the One Child One Skill project (http://www.come-into-my-world.com/one-child-one-skill). Brought Calder along so the volunteers could try interacting with an autistic child. In groups, they had to teach Calder Tic Tac Toe:
Volunteer: Write one 'O' here.
(Calder wrote "10".)
Volunteer: Write another one here.
(Calder wrote "1".)
Volunteer: If you put one more here, you will have three!
(Calder wrote "3".)
The art of communicating with an autistic child.
