    Just a proud Mama sharing a great moment. My son is 7 years old and has Aspergers. His second grade class had to do a notable person presentation and he chose Walt Disney. He worked so hard on his paper and his poster and was so nervous about speaking in front of all the parents. He did AMAZING!!! Walt would have been proud.

    Here are a few pictures of my little man's big moment...

    At our school they do this in 3rd grade...the Famous American report. 5 minutes memorized with incorporated props and quotes! WD is always one of the first people chosen (no duplicates allowed), amongst both boys and girls. Neither of mine were able to pick him, but he was on the top of both of their lists.

    He looked great! Congratulations!

    I rarely post but couldn't let this go by.
    He is adorable and looks great as Walt.
    I would love to see a video of his presentation.
