This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.
New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.
... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).
Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.
Therefore all stories, despite relating actual facts, are obviously biased by my interpretation of his behavior. But having known him for over five years, I don't think I'm getting it wrong.
Thank you to the "Roi Baudoin" foundation ( "Parcours hors pistes" ). The new design, hosting and translations were partially made possible by their financial support.
Many thanks to Marco Pappalardo et Laetitia Bouet for the translation.

80. My small hands
What the pictures can't show you is of course movement. And I know quite a bit about that. As a matter of fact, I spend a lot of time waving my small hands all around. I rub them very quickly against each other in front of myself, I wave them in front of my mouth, I bang them on my face (without hurting myself!); open hands, closed fists, with or without sound. Daddy and mommy found out they are called "reassurance gestures". Generally these gestures mean I'm navigating in the world of my sensations, that reassuring world... So that became another battlefield for my teacher and my parents. They don't want me to make those gestures all the time, whereas I do as I please : I need those gestures too much : they help me live sensations in my body and in space, and they put rhythm into the time passing (and I love rhythm)
By the way, air is matter (and not void) ! I'm telling you ! (try moving your arm normally from left to right with your eyes closed). Come on ! So let me toss air in peace : it's my personal home cinema. ... Well ok, I'm also interested in your world... but it's up to the ones around me to arouse my interest in it ! Get to work daddy and mommy !
