It’s finally here! Toby’s gone back to school. He beamed and hugged me when I told him that it was a ‘school day’…we have school day and home day on his visual timetable.

He then became instantly calm (calmer than he’s been all holidays!) no running up and down or jumping just calm as if to say ‘this is right…this is what I do!’ However being totally non-verbal he can’t say that.

He got his uniform on and picked up his bag and stood at the door waiting for his taxi. It didn’t bother him at all that it was a different taxi company, driver and escort – he just wanted to go to school.

Now to have a chilled day with Teddy – perfect!

Last year and this year – how much has he grown?!
