What do you do if your boy with autism is too big to go into the ladies with you, yet you need to use the toilet when in public? Recently I started asking Calder to sit on the floor and drink from his water bottle while waiting for Mommy. Seating is a feeble attempt at anchoring while drinking is to occupy him so he doesn't get distracted and run off. So far so good. Meanwhile I pray that no one would approach him to tell him he cannot sit there. Might be a good idea to install seats near public toilets.

Today I taught Calder to keep socks. First he has to decide which are the matching pairs. Then he has to fold the two socks into one. And keep them in the right place, depending on who they belong.
