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.

The dentist makes him smile

Today Bryce had his first teeth cleaning and did absolutely amazing from start to finish including perfect X-rays on the first try!

I forgot to bring my phone to take pictures during his appointment, but he completely surprised me staying super still for x-rays and didn’t even have a problem with the awkwardness of the grape flavoured flouride trays.

My dentist is great and I’ve been going to him for years. He is really patient and thorough. His lovely assistant who cleaned Bryce teeth was also very patient and told Bryce everything she was going to do, making it fun, and to fit his level of comfort.

I made a social story using i Create... Social Skills Stories app by i Get It! Apps to help prepare Bryce for his first teeth cleaning dentist appointment. You can customize everything from text to images, and even record your voice to add to the social story.

I took pictures of the dentists office, the chair he’d be sitting in, and used pictures I found online of teeth and teeth cleaning to add to the story.
