"About a Boy"

An article from the Guardian in the UK (12/3/06)

Summary: Paul Solotaroff writes about the impact surfing with Elliot had on his son Luke, who has autism.  Paul found the chance to engage his child at play and develop something that they can do together. On a surfboard, his son is instantly in his glory.   At the end of an exhilarating day surfing with Elliot, Paul describes his son’s actions as he, “surprises me with a hug, an act he confirms by yelling, 'Hug!' I hold him so tight it makes my own head reel... I lower him in my arms till he's horizontal… 'My brave little boy is surfing.' Luke put his arms out to skim the waves and said, 'Whee, whee, whee' all the way in.”
