SMELLS!

One of the strangest things about autism is that the sense of smell is off...  One of the questions on the BB parent paperwork is whether or not the parents ever remember their child commenting on smelling anything... cookies, pizza, burning smell...  One of the exercises that we do with Alexi is having her smell right-brain stimulating oils: peppermint, eucalyptus and lemon...  It is also part of the BB program exercises they do there. 

 

Today marks the very first sign that Alexi SMELLS!  I had just finished making popcorn and Alexi stepped in the front door after school and said "I want lunch - popcorns!"

 

Very happy - another small step in the right direction!
