POV –

I have written before that T has his own iPad to use the communication software program Proloquo2Go®.

He also has educational games on it (Thank you i Game Mom for always awesome suggestions!). He has books on it, Avenger games, iTunes, etc. He also has a camera.  My mom and I discovered several photos T had taken: some beautiful self-portraits, one of Walt-the-dog, a box of his favorite cereal (LIFE) and us.

I asked him about the photos.

“You like taking pictures?”

“Yesith! Yesith! Yesith!”

 The following are from yesterday.

 He is developing an eye, a point of view.

I love how he sees the world – through lines and intersections.

I posted some of the photos on my Facebook page and a friend wisely wrote:

Some people communicate best with words, others with music, and some with pictures. Post the ones Thorin likes best.

We bought the iPad for T to be able to communicate with the world and he is.

A couple years ago I wrote a post that applies still very much today and always: Don’t Fence Me In.

Enjoy!
