Austin received an invitation to a party from a girl in his class. The party is to take place March 3rd and the dreaded words "Lunch Will be Served" are written in the card. Sigh ... what to do? These parents do not know Austin and have no idea he is on the spectrum. Do I tell them that Austin is on the spectrum and to expect maybe some behaviour if he gets bored or overstimulated? He is such a picky eater, which is getting better but I cannot ask "What are you planning to serve?" That is just not me ... I just don't want them to be taken of guard ... am I being a party pooper or what?
Austin was at a party last Saturday, I attended with him. It was different though because these parents know Austin is on the spectrum and have known him a long time. They are also very supportive and accept Austin for who he is and do not judge. I am very grateful to have them as friends and Austin has a great friend in their son too!
Any suggestions? I would really appreciate the input. Thanks everyone!
All the best! *HUGS*
