Individuals with autism are thought to have little or no emotion. I'm not sure why. I believe it's a myth. Individuals on the autism spectrum experience and show emotion.
Today, at our Disney on Ice princesses event, my girl reminded me a lot of ME. When Snow White ate the poisoned apple and fell into a deep sleep, my girl began to cry. When Prince Charming kissed her and she woke, my girl reached into our lunchbox for a napkin and used it to mop the tears from her eyes and face.
