Dear Jakey,

Today you had Minor Improvements with Karen after school. You were sleeping when we first got there so I am not sure how much you heard of our conversation. Karen was pretty stressed out but I think she was pretty excited that you were there and she would get to work with you. When I left I was telling her she should talk to you because you are a good listener. I was kind of joking but I also was sort of serious – even though you can’t talk back you have a way of making people feel like you care about what they say (most of the time – sometimes you pay us no mind!)

Anyways, I came back 45 minutes later to pick you up and Karen was much happier. You really have this amazing way of making people feel good. I am not sure how you do it but you take what we give you and manage to make us feel better. Your eyes are so expressive sometimes that you don’t need words – we can understand what you are trying to say. When I left with you, Karen thanked me for bringing you in today. That sure makes your mommy proud!
