Her post has attracted over 7400 likes and 615+ comments of praise and encouragement for Marshall and his cooking skills.
Other parents of children with Autism were also thrilled to see the positive response Caroline had received.
One mum wrote, ‘Seeing 5.1k likes and hundreds of comments on this post after four hours warms my heart. My son also has autism, and I worry constantly about the way the world will treat him. It’s clear to see that understanding and support is around in abundance.’
My 10 year old loves to cook! Guess what he bought himself with left over Easter Money?
A pie maker!! Of all things. Proud mum, glad he didn’t just get another pointless toy.
Do your kids love to cook? What’s something they have created all by themselves?
