When Ethan started tae-kwon-do in January, I wasn’t sure how long this activity would last. Ethan’s lack of coordination, due to his autism, makes sports hard for him, and he gets discouraged easily. But the teachers at the tae-kwon-do studio have been so encouraging. When Ethan forgets the movements of a routine, they patiently help him through it. All the hard work paid off when Ethan moved up to a orange belt last week. The spring in his step when he walks into the studio now makes me think this sport is a keeper.
