Success at the Social Studies Fair

Share Your Story: Look What My Kid Can Do!

Success at the Social Studies Fair

The comic-book project and its creator

What My Kid Did

This weekend my family and I will be at the Regional Social Studies Fair with my Aspie son. He placed first in the school and county social studies fairs. If he wins this weekend, he and his project will go on to the state competition!

How It Happened

One of his "special interests" is comic books; so we took that and made the project "How Comic Books Reflect American Culture."

With his talent for words, he loved researching and writing for the project. And my husband and I got into it by helping him lay out his backboard display.

Advice

  • Since you are the expert on your child, you can use their special interests to help them succeed.
