Painting that’s not too far from completion, just needs a few more bits outlining:

The Thing - a short story of Aspergers

‘ The Thing is a simple story poetically told by a loving mother of a 7 year old boy with High Functioning Aspergers. Written to fill the hole she had found in this very niche market, her book doesn’t teach you how to change your child. It doesn't teach the child the nature of their condition and how to survive or mask it. It isn’t about fixing anything at all...merely supporting your child to accept it and in some way embrace it as an indelible but increasingly inconsequential part of who they are. ‘
