Interview With a 5-Year-Old

In honor of my Jrue’s fifth birthday on June 7, I thought it great to crack open his brain and take a peek inside, something I had not performed since he began specialized education and consistent speech therapy for Autism Spectrum Disorder. I discussed the discovery of his unique condition at length in previous posts. I sat Jrue down comfortably to interview and randomized my inquiries. The answers were directly dictated and avoided editing.

Jrue: “V.”
