Tell me something positive and wonderful about your autistic child

We have suspected that our 2.5 year old DS1 is autistic for some months now. We had our appointment with the consultant paediatrician yesterday, who said that DS1 does in his opinion have an ASD. DS1 just needs to be seen by the specialist speech & language therapist now before they formally diagnose, which I'm almost certain they will.

Anyway, this whole process is hard, even though a diagnosis won't change anything really. So, please tell me something wonderful about your DC with autism.
