For a kid with severe autism, Tosh is pretty photogenic. His school photos aren’t Hollywood headshot quality, but overall, he takes great school pictures.
Except this Spring. As you can see above, to the untrained eye, his Spring school photo was pretty bad.
But for this autism mom, that picture is my very favorite.
He’s standing up straight and still, with his arms down to his sides. If you’re intimately familiar with autism, you know that alone is an achievement. As Tosh’s mom, I see even more.
