As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Bryce Sings?

Even though Bryce is challenged everyday of his life with communication, understanding and development, he enjoys music and singing! You will always find Bryce singing when his favourite songs come on. He may not always have the right words, and he may not always keep in tune, but that doesn’t stop him from enjoying the music and singing his songs.

I think its important that he hears that words alone don’t make communication, that tone and pitch, etc. can change the meaning of words and the response from others to those words. Honestly, he struggles with his own speaking volume and tone and development of language, but you can see it on his face when he sings that he’s enjoying what ability he does have to communicate.

I thought I would share that with you all. Some of Bryce’s favourite songs that I’ve heard him sing are:

  • Songs from the musical Rent
  • A couple of songs from Black Eyed Peas
  • Boys, Boys, Boys by Lady Gaga
  • In My Head by Jason Derulo
  • Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond

Just to name a few.
